"A fascinating walk through the rise and fall of the Architects' Small House Service Bureau and the change in attitudes about `home' that were supported, and then dismissed, by design professionals. The drawings, details, photographic images and perspectives included provide a unique insight into the development of the American home." - Cynthia Mohr, Professor and Chair, University of North Texas, USA
