Author(s): Michael Sorkin
Robert Hughes once described Michael Sorkin as "unique in America - - brave, principled, highly informed and fiercely funny." All Over the Map confirms all of these superlatives as Sorkin assaults "the national security city, with its architecture of manufactured fear."
"Easily one of the best architecture critics around ... Sorkin is a flaneur with a sense of public purpose." - Chris Hall, Guardian "America's most invigorating writer on architecture. " - Observer "Sorkin is one of the most intelligent writers on architecture today. " - Library Journal "Sorkin is a formidable opponent of the banal, the ugly, the stupid and the vapidly posturing which, he argues, are all around us. " - Publishers Weekly
