This volume concentrates on resources that are useful, in an easy-to-use format, to enable the architect to assess this wealth of knowledge. More than a simple listing, the book provides the "intelligence" to find, evaluate and contact the resources that can save time and money in the day-to-day practice of an architect. It includes a system to indicate to readers which listings are the most targetted in terms of the "best" sources. There are four indexes: keyword index, name index, master format index, and acronym index.
"This is a delightful book, a small gem replete with insightful, provocative pieces about both American culture and Jewish life. I think that Stephen Whitfield is one of the most original essayists on these two topics. Few other scholars combine the density of his knowledge with the verve of his prose". -- Hasia R. Diner, New York University
