The material and cultural world in which we now live perhaps represents the end of a process created out of the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution. The battles fought over class, ideology and language are represented most clearly in the explosion of new building types during the Century of Revolutions.
Lavishly illustrated with photographs, drawings, maps and plans, Buildings and Power analyses architectural form, function and space to explore the reproduction and the subversion of power in the modern city.

Thomas A. Markus is Emeritus Professor at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. He is an architect who has worked as a designer, teacher and researcher on three continents.Review:
'The outstanding feature is Markus' precision and exhaustive learning. To chart the historical evolution of even one type of building without error or omission is an achievement. Markus performs flawlessly across every field ... the result of these endeavours, then, is a book of extraordinary and lasting value.' - Architecture Today
