The 1980 edition, by William Dudley Hunt, Jr., is cited in Sheehy . Intended for student, general-reader, and professional use (although much is too basic for those working in the field), this reference is nontechnical (specialized terms are defined where used), and contains further reading suggestions with each article. The new edition includes some 500 color photos (about half shot expressly for this work), new biographies, and articles on such topics as "green architecture," computer applications, the growth of edge cities, and facilities for the handicapped. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
