A comprehensive guide to Russian architecture, this volume is designed for students and other readers wishing to gain an understanding of the subject.
"Brumfield's very real achievement of making the most important monuments of Russian architecture and their Russian sources accessible to a broad public inside and outside academic circles. Landmarks represents one of the most comprehensive and convenient introductions to the rich heritage of Russia's built enviroment, a a contribution for which many will be deeply grateful."
" Professor Brumfield is perhaps the late twentieth century's most prolific writer on Russian architectural history. His informative prose and elegant photography offer fresh insights into a built environment all too long ignored in the west. I am genuinely excited by William Brumfield's bLandmarks of Russian Architecture/b."
" ...this book fills a niche, because we have no modestly priced general book on Russian architecture that general readers in public libraries can consult, or that professors can assign in courses on Russian civilization...The strength of the book will certainly be his photographs, which document the evolution of architectural forms in Russia in an invaluable way."
