The True, the Fictive and the Real, The Historical Dictionary of Architecture of Quatremère de Quincy by Professor Samir Younés

Samir Younés, Director of the Rome Studies Program, is the author of The True, the Fictive and the Real, The Historical Dictionary of Architecture of Quatremère de Quincy (Papadakis). The book's introductory essays examine the thought of French theorist A.C. Quatremère de Quincy (1755–1849) and its applicability to contemporary traditional architecture. It also provides the first English translation of all the key entries of the Historical Dictionary of Architecture. The Journal of Architectural Education's Book Review called the book: "...an important contribution on the role of tradition in contemporary architectural practice."
