This is a unique reference tool for finding images of approximately 7,000 architectural works reproduced in more than 100 books likely to be available in libraries with architectural collections. The index is international in coverage; includes a variety of architectural, engineering, and planning works; and covers most historical periods and styles. Citations to reproductions of exterior and interior views, plans, sections, and elevations are provided, and access is enabled by building site, architect, type of work, and name of work indexes. The index is organized into four parts. Part I, the Site Index, is the principal index and lists architectural works alphabetically according to specific location. For each work, the following information is provided, if available: name of work, alternate names, date of work, architect(s), and citation information organized according to exterior view, interior view, plan, section, or elevation. The Architect Index, Part II, lists alphabetically the architects, engineers, planners, and others responsible for works cited in Part I. A typical listing provides the name of the architect, other names by which he or she is known, life dates, and the works listed alphabetically with their sites. The third part organizes the works according to particular type of building or structure. Part IV, the Work Index, lists names and alternate names of works and parts of works, as revealed in the indexed sources. The books indexed for this unique reference work were selected to form a representative survey of the major periods of architectural history. World Architecture Index is a unique reference and research tool that will be welcomed by students and scholars of architecture, art history, civil engineering, interior design, landscape architecture, urban planning, and world history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A much-needed index to the illustrations in standard books on world architecture. More than 7,200 architectural works in some 100 books are indexed here by site, architect, architectural type, and by names and alternative names of works. The citations indicate the type of illustration to be found: interior or exterior views, plans, sections, or elevations. Because the majority of the books indexed are from well-known publishers' monographic series, including Abrams's "History of World Architecture" and Braziller's "The Great Ages of World Architecture" and from such standard works as the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of World Art, sources should be widely available, and this index will be a real time saver for both librarians and scholars. Teague's index has been carefully arranged and thoughtfully produced, printed on paper meeting the Permanent Paper Standard issued by NISO. Highly recommended both for large public and for upper-division undergraduate and university libraries."-Choice
