Reviews - What do customers think about Landmarks of Russian Architecture: A Photographic Survey (Documenting the Image Series, Vol. 5)?

Short visual history of Russian architecture  Sep 21, 1998
It is a short but richly illustrated introduction into the history of Russian architecture. Russian architecture is an expression of dramatic historic struggle of Russian people for the preservation of their national identity and demonstration of the creative development of their Eastern Orthodox culture under the constant pressure of aliened Western culture during periodical waves of Russian modernization. Unfortunately, the dramatism of this struggle and strong capacities of Russian architecture for creative adoptation is not well described in the accompanied text. It is a very good but not exciting book.
