From the Back Cover
Learning From Las Vegas created a healthy controversy on its appearance in 1972, calling for architects to be more receptive to the tastes and values of 'common' people and less immodest in their erections of 'heroic, ' self-aggrandizing monuments. This revision includes the full texts of Part I of the original, on the Las Vegas Strip, and Part II, ' Ugly and Ordinary Architecture, or the Decorated Shed, ' a generalization from the finding of the first part on symbolism in architecture and the iconography of urban sprawl.
