He has acquired an enviable international reputation for thoroughness of research, impeccable scholarship, and lucidity of style, and has not been afraid to venture into paths unfrequented by those of a more timid disposition. Starting in the early 1960s, he was one of the first serious researchers into the history of the 19th-century cemetery, and in 2000–01 edited Kensal Green Cemetery: The Origins & Development of the General Cemetery of All Souls, Kensal Green, London, 1824–2001, the most comprehensive monograph of any British cemetery. Now in his eighth decade, his acerbic wit, intellectual curiosity, robust views and fluency of expression remain undiminished.

What I have read thus far of the text is both very readable and scholarly, a combination not always found in art books. The focus is both broad and detailed, so I will be learning quite a bit despite my already vast storehouse of knowledge. :) The issues dealt with are not dry and pedantic, so I'm looking forward to being able to read it cover to cover in my spare time, assuming that I find some.(Except perhaps for the vast body of footnotes,indexes, references, and supplementary information that shows a very dedicated, in fact passionate approach to compiling this book.
I am very pleased with this purchase, which I highly recommend it to my fellow figurative sculptors, as well as anyone interested in learning a lot about this topic.
Professor Licht was the first director of the Florida State University Florence Study Center and remained the director for over a decade. The program began in 1966 -- the year of The Flood. FSU students volunteered to assist the devastated city.
Professor Licht is one of the very best professors I've ever had the pleasure to learn from.
