Full Text Reviews
Appeared in Choice on 1993-06:
Construction Glossary sets the standard for clear communication between individuals and agencies related to the construction field, including architects, engineers, contractors, attorneys, government agencies, mortgaging agencies, appraisers, code and ordinance administrators, interior designers and decorators, and realtors. Stein attempts to clarify and define, in succinct terms, the established and currently most commonly used terminology in the field of construction. The work would benefit from the use of illustrations and from more consistent use of diacritics on words of foreign origin--i.e., "broch'e," "boucl'e," "crepe de chine." Recommended for technical, undergraduate, and graduate academic programs in engineering. R. Comeau; New Hampshire Technical College at Manchester
