A history of Russian architecture by William Craft Brumfield ( Book )
24 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 1,263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A History of Russian Architecture, the most comprehensive study of this subject to date, surveys the development of Russian architecture, from the masonry churches of tenth-century Kievan Rus to the prefabricated built environments of the present. Subject to cultural and stylistic influences from both east and west, Russian architecture nonetheless developed its own distinctive approaches to building, as demonstrated in the four parts of this study: early medieval Rus up to the Mongol invasion in the midtwelfth century; the revival of architecture in Novgorod and Muscovy from the fourteenth to seventeenth centuries; the cultural revolution of architecture during the reigns of Peter the Great and his successors in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries; and the advent of modern architecture, ranging from the colorful eclecticism of the nineteenth century to the rigorous experiments in avant-garde design of the early twentieth century, which were followed by a return to monumental eclecticism in the Soviet period. Analyzing stylistic developments within their historical contexts, this volume serves as a rich cultural history that will be invaluable to scholars and general readers alike. Lavishly illustrated, A History of Russian Architecture includes line drawings, plans and elevations, and a full complement of photographs taken by the author

Lost Russia : photographing the ruins of Russian architecture by William Craft Brumfield ( Book )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The twentieth century in Russia has been a cataclysm of rare proportions, as war, revolution, famine, and massive political terror tested the limits of human endurance. The results of this assault on Russian culture are particularly evident in ruined architectural monuments, some of which are little known even within Russia itself. Over the past two decades William Craft Brumfield, noted historian of Russian architecture, has traveled throughout Russia and photographed many of these neglected, lost buildings, haunting in their ruin. Lost Russia provides a unique view of Brumfield's acclaimed work, which illuminates Russian culture as reflected in these remnants of its distinctive architectural traditions." "Capturing the quiet, ineffable beauty that graces these buildings, these photographs are accompanied by a text that provides not only a brief historical background for Russian architecture, but also Brumfield's personal impressions, thoughts, and insights on the structures he views. Churches and monasteries from the fifteenth to the twentieth century as well as abandoned, ruined manor houses are shown - ravaged by time, willful neglect, and cultural vandalism." "In addition to the ruins of Russian architecture, Lost Russia illustrates examples of recent local initiatives to preserve cultural landmarks from steady decline and destruction. The book concludes with photographs of the remarkable log architecture found in Russia's far north, culminating with the Church of the Transfiguration on the island of Kizhi - itself in imminent danger owing to the lack of such preservation efforts."--BOOK JACKET
