Summary

This all-embracing and well-illustrated survey provides an even-handed, straightforward history of English architecture from Anglo-Saxon times to the end of the 20th century. Concentrating on buildings that can still be seen today, David Watkin discusses all the styles and periods of English architecture, including Norman, early Gothic, Perpendicular, Jacobean, Baroque, Classical Revival and Victorian.

The emphasis is on the high points of English creative genius as expressed in the art of architecture by Inigo Jones, Christopher Wren, John Soane, Edwin Lutyens, Richard Rogers and a host of others. This updated edition includes a new preface, a revised bibliography, and an expanded chapter on the Modern Movement and more recent styles that brings the story up to the present.
David Watkin's many books include Morality and Architecture and A History of Western Architecture.
