Sutcliffe (economic and social history, U. of Leicester) shows how the physical Paris of today is an overlay of many styles of architecture, from the Renaissance to the 20th century, and preserves traditions that date back even to Roman times. He delves into the political, social, and economic contexts and significance of the various developments, and how architectural styles, unlike clothing fashions, have to be dealt with for a long time after someone thought they were a good idea. The book is highly illustrated, mostly in color, but is for scholars rather than tourists. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
