"American Architecture introduces the major developments that shaped the American-built environment from before the arrival of the Europeans to the present, from ceremonial enclosures and homes to modernism and its discontents. On both the high-style architecture of aspiration and the everyday vernacular architecture, Leland Roth presents the historical impact of changes in conceptual imagery, style, building technology, landscape design, and town-planning theory. There is also extensive historical coverage of 17th- and 18th-century architecture and regional style. Throughout Roth charts the gradual development of towns, cities, and suburbs along with the social, cultural, and political forces that shaped their growth."--BOOK JACKET

She incorporates an extensive history of the European roots of early American architecture, with detailed discussions of town planning, tools and construction methods. Numerous previously unpublished maps, photographs and illustrations complement the text. The result is not only the final work of a great American scholar, but an accessible resource for academics and architecture buffs alike."--BOOK JACKET
