Inhaltsangabe: This book follows on from "The Story of Western Architecture" and "Modern Architecture and Design" by offering a detailed examination of the British experience over the last decade. The author critically examines the theory and practice of the Thatcher years: the crisis of modernism, the commercial exploitation of the city, and the political and architectural theories behind it all. He also looks at the signs of hope for the future of our cities - people's growing concern for the environment and the earth's resources, their increasing demands for positive change - and at their architectural implications. As with earlier books, the author places his subject in as wide a context as possible, geographical and historical, relating it to economic theory and political practice, to current trends in town planning, art, education, philosophy and literary theory.
