Add my review for 20th Century Architecture - A Reader's Guide

Book description:

* Reviews all major books on 20th century architecture * Pawley is a well-known and respected polemicist * 'Must-have-read' book packed with facts that it would be embarrassing not to know In his famously controversial style - Martin Pawley reviews a selection of books on the architecture of the 20th century. Books that we should have read, and indeed would have read - if only we'd had the time. Pawley digests and critiques them for us with an agility that has kept the readers of his newspaper and magazine columns provoked and amused for several decades. He provides us with both ammunition and armour - encouraging us to fight off the soporific PR-led commentary of today and to rekindle the passion of the architectural debate.
