    We used this book in my graduate Into to American Architectural History course Pros It does a good job of putting architecture into social, cultural, economic, and political context It features lots of photos It describes many facets of architecture, such as landscape architecture and company housing.Cons It is so very long and detailed Some chapters are nearly one hundred pages long For someone with zero previous architectural classwork or experience, it was often overwhelming and mono We used this book in my graduate Into to American Architectural History course Pros It does a good job of putting architecture into social, cultural, economic, and political context It features lots of photos It describes many facets of architecture, such as landscape architecture and company housing.Cons It is so very long and detailed Some chapters are nearly one hundred pages long For someone with zero previous architectural classwork or experience, it was often overwhelming and monotonous, and it featured much architectural theory that I felt it would require specialized knowledge to really understand, not just this book.So, while this tome is certainly very thorough, I would not recommend it for an introductory architectural history class
