Casual and serious readers alike will be captivated by this comprehensive survey of the Western world's architecture.

    Suprisingly the book begins with Ancient Rome, leaving the Caves, Stonehenge, and Egypt out, but as a result has more time to explore Western Architecture in greater depth for a Survey Book. The photographs are excellent, with many in color. The Story of Western Architecture explores not only the buildings constructed, but also how they were built, by whom and for what purpose. This informative book, brought to life through the author's expressive line drawings, is an essential guide to how buildings have evolved through time for keen amateurs and experts alike.

    The history of Western architecture is marked by a series of new solutions to structural problems. During the period from the beginning of civilization through ancient Greek culture, construction methods progressed from the most primitive shed roof and simple truss to the vertical posts, or columns, supporting horizontal beams, or lintels (see post-and-lintel system).   The book comes at a charged time, when supposedly western architecture is being mobilised by right-wing nationalist groups to bolster their idealised vision of a “pure” European identity.
