Riassunto: The great survey of the American Greek Revival style, back in print and in an updated form for the first time since 1995. Stately Greek Revival architecture reached full flower in the 1820s, when impressive white temple-fronted facades with columns and pilasters were the prevailing style for new buildings throughout America. Roger Kennedy examines the social, political, and psychological forces that underpinned this opulent style. Kennedy?s text is complemented by full-color photographs that were specially commissioned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Magnificent examples of churches, banks, government buildings, and residences, as well as interiors, are featured. Included are a new preface and an updated appendix of every important surviving Greek Revival structure in the United States today.

L'autore: Roger G. Kennedy is the former director of the National Park Service and director emeritus of the National Museum of American History. He has written numerous books and articles on the history and architecture of the United States. When Art Worked: The New Deal, Art, and Democracy was published by Rizzoli in Fall 2009.
