‘"Architecture made of words" is how the authors of The Dissertation describe their subject. Students are guided through the whole process, from choosing a subject right through to troubleshooting and trying to publish. Borden and Rüedi Ray are full of sage advice and helpful tips and, most usefully, their new edition provides five real dissertations demonstrating the variety of research and writing possible. Lucid and sensible, this is an essential guide for all architectural students.' - Professor Mark Crinson, University of Manchester
'An invaluable reference guide packed with useful advice and supported with inspiring and informative examples. This book should be required reading for anyone about to navigate the challenges of writing a dissertation.' - C. Greig Crysler, Associate Professor of Architecture and Arcus Chair, College of Environmental Design, UC Berkeley
