The book begins with a brief introduction by the editor, who frames these problems and issues and embeds the essays within the larger context of contemporary architectural discourse. Short biographies of the authors at the end of the book round off the publication.Shamiyeh, Michael is the author of 'Organizing for Change Integrating Architectural Thinking in Other Fields', published 2007 under ISBN 9783764378097 and ISBN 3764378093.
