Murphy was an American architect who practiced in China, where he learned to strike a balance between Western technologies and Chinese stylistic features in projects such as a Yale campus at Hunan. Cody (Chinese U. of Hong Kong) studies Murphy's life and work in an effort to reveal how his "adaptability transcended questions of architectural style to include matters of commerce, personal career success, and, to some degree, education and politics. He crossed more than national boundaries." With 12 color plates and many b&w sketches and photos. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
