Editorial Reviews


"Explains how architectural decisions were made in response to changing technologies and tastes as the structures were built, destroyed, and rebuilt. She presents additional material in sidebars about the...specific architectural features, and important individuals."
-- School Library Journal (September 2001) (School Library Journal 20010901)

"A variety of illustrations and contemporary remarks about the building complement and enhance the text."
-- Calliope (April 2002) (UNKNOWN 20020401)

"This well-researched account is packed with detailed information about the technical principles of construction, architectural features, and maintenance of these important...structures. Extensive use of quotes from primary and secondary sources present interesting descriptions of life and customs...and the problems that needed to be addressed - both technical and administrative - to make these structures possible. Sidebars provide biographical material about major designers and builders. Overall, a well-organized, lucidly written resource."
-- School Library Journal (March 2001) (School Library Journal 20010301)
