The author, who lectures at London University, traces the development of architecture in Europe from the beginning of Greek civilisation to the present day. This is a highly comprehensive work which includes detailed sections on Byzantine, Roman and Gothic architecture. The effect of the Renaissance on Italian architecture and building in the rest of Europe is carefully examined and finally the author explains the latest architectural trends and suggests possible styles that may be used in the future.
Of Dr. Hoar's earlier book, An Introduction to English Architecture, 'The Times' said, 'Dr. Hoar writes as effortlessly as he draws'.
