`Gives an account of the lives, theories and work of the architects of the movement which began in England and quickly influenced Europe and America. It highlights the contradictions they tried to resolve in accommodating or rejecting the development of the new machine age, and in meeting the cost of materials and craftsmanship which forced them to work mainly for a wealthy elite. It shows how the ideas of the movement influenced the California and Prairie Schools and Art Nouveau and how they led to the development of new-Georgianism and the growth of the machine-worshipping Modern Movement after the Great War."
