Nathan Glazer

Interesting review in the June 3 NYT book review section about a new book on Modernism in architecture by Nathan Glazer: From a cause to a style. I am trying to find a concise, scholarly precis on the ideology of Modernism to use for my dissertation chapter on socialist ideology.

Searching MNCAT for his work, I found another that would be useful to read: The public face of architecture : civic culture and public spaces, Macmillan, 1987. This might be quite useful for a course in urban history, or urban geography focused on civic engagement.

From the rest of his extensive catalog (49 entries) I infer that he is a professor who studied urban race and ethnicity and its relationship to public policy, and then moved to studying higher education.
