Neil Levine, the Emmet Blakeney Gleason Professor of History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University, is the author of "The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright" (Princeton).
"The endpapers of Modern Architecture--which Princeton University Press has reissued in a facsimile of its original 1931 edition--are embellished with Wright aphorisms that recall the improving mottoes typically displayed in Arts and Crafts interiors... The Princeton reprint has an authoritative introduction by the architectural historian Neil Levine."--Martin Filler, New York Review of Books "Perhaps some people think you can have too many books on Frank Lloyd Wright, but I believe there's always room for more. This year, it's a scholarly duo from Princeton University Press: The Essential Frank Lloyd Wright: Critical Writings on Architecture, edited by Wright scholar Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer (453 pages, $49.95) and the essential Modern Architecture: Being the Kahn Lectures for 1930, with a new introduction by Neil Levine (115 pages, $29.95)."--Mary Chandler, Rocky Mountain News Praise for the original edition: "Exuberant, confessedly romantic, insistently individualistic, at times even florid and rhetorical, [Modern Architecture] is still (and I say it, who fought my rising enthusiasm at every turn of a page) the very best book on modern architecture that exists."--Catherine Bauer, New Republic
