Perspectives in Vernacular Architecture will serve admirably to document the scope of vernacular architecture studies in the United States today” praised Landscape Journal in a review of Volumes I and II. The Journal of American History described Volume III as “a lively, varied, and interesting collection reflective of vernacular architecture’s continuing development as a field of historical inquiry.”

Continuing in the tradition of the first three books, this fourth volume in the highly regarded Perspectives in Vernacular Architecture series represents some of the best and most recent scholarly work in the field. Ranging from studies of colonial masons to twentieth-century suburbanization, from the role of women in the creation of vernacular architecture to a history of beds and bedrooms, Volume VI explores the images and meanings of the nation’s architecture at its most human level, the level of everyday life.
