"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."
