From the cover: Architecture cannot be studied in vacua, for it is a visible record of a countrys history, bound closely to her periods of power, poverty and wealth. In telling the story of Englands building achievement, ; from Saxon times down to 1914, Bryan Little shows how far architectural styles have developed in answer to constructional needs, and how they have been influenced by political, social and economic factors; how, too, they have reflected the acceptance, or rejection, of the main artistic trends on the Continent. As a result the reader can appreciate not only how one style differed from another…
