5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding Chicago's Design and Development, May 24, 2000
This review is from: Constructing Chicago (Hardcover)
Few scholars can write with ease; and even fewer write without verbosity and pomposity. Professor Bluestone's book on Chicago's development is a source of invaluable information presented in a literary fashion. His scope is wide ranging, but not shallow in any respect. He deals with philosophy, history, personalities, the influence of men and movements upon each other in the city where 20th century architecture was born. Whether you are a scholar, an architect or just a buff, this is a book that offers information, knowledge and wisdom.

This review is from: Constructing Chicago (Hardcover)
The book was very clean including the jacket. The conditions were very good, although as an ex-library book it had been obviously used.
