"Marti's focus on housing is appropriate since it is not only a basic human need but also constitutes by far the largest component of our constructed environment. The historical perspective serves as a well-informed introduction to the pioneering (albeit somewhat disturbing) scenarios projected for the future development of the nation's habitats. This work should be of considerable interest to libraries serving students in the fields of architecture, sociology, and urban studies." - Choice
