Summary: When Marcus Whiffen's classic introduction to American architectural styles was published in 1969, Reyner Banham called it ''one of the most enjoyable general works on American architecture that has ever appeared.'' This new edition, containing descriptions, histories, and illustrations of more than forty architectural styles, has been revised and updated to include two new entries on late modernism and on post-modernism and a description of ''streamline moderne,'' now recognized as
an independent style. The number of illustrations has been increased to 200. Marcus Whiffen is Professor Emeritus in the School of Architecture at Arizona State University.
