Appeared in Choice on 1986-04:
The history of industrial architecture is a small subspecialty of architectural history with its greatest following in England where industrialism began. This is at least the second historical survey of industrial architecture in England, following by more than ten years Harold A.N. Brockman's The British Architect in Industry, 1841-1940 (CH, Jan '75), a fine book but somewhat anecdotal in its presentation and limited to just one century, 1840-1940. The book at hand, in contrast to Brockman, presents hard, straight architectural history over almost two centuries focusing on the buildings themselves rather than their architects or styles. Well illustrated, crisply written, and thoroughly researched, it is highly recommended to architecture and art libraries and to larger public and academic libraries with collection strength in architecture.-P. Kaufman, Suffolk County Community College
