About the Author"The 2nd edition of History of Modern Design gives me the opportunity to share my excitement about this subject with students and with the general public. I'm delighted that Prentice-Hall and Laurence King Publishing (in the UK) allowed me to revisit the subject matter, change, and add to its content. If you'd like to comment on the book or just write about design and design history, I'd welcome your thoughts and observations." David Raizman is Professor in the Art and Art History Department in the Westphal College of Media Arts & Design at Drexel University in Philadelphia and currently Head in the College's Media Arts Department. In addition to being the author of History of Modern Design, he also has written numerous articles and reviews, and co-edited with Professor Carma Gorman (Southern Illinois University, Carbondale) the book Objects, Audiences, and Literatures: Alternative Narratives in the History of Design, Newcastle, Cambridge Scholars Press, 2007). He was a research fellow at the Wolfsonian-Florida International University museum in Miami Beach, Florida in October, 2009, examining materials for his current research topic: 19th-century World's Fairs in relation to the design, production, and reception of furniture. He has been teaching at Drexel University since 1989, and earned his Ph.D in art history at the University of Pittsburgh (1980). Professor Raizman has been an invited speaker on art and design history topics at numerous conferences and sponsored events. These include the Second International Conference on Historical Studies in Design, Universitá Iuav, Venice, Italy, The Columbus College of Art & Design, Columbus, Ohio, the Rhode Island School of Design (Industrial Design students), Providence, Rhode Island, the Preservation Society of Newport, Newport, Rhode Island, and the Morgan Library in New York.

Editorial ReviewDavid Raizman's History of Modern Design has assumed landmark status within design studies. Synthesizing design, technology, art history and social history, Raizman builds a cogent argument for studying design as both a production-based discipline and an intellectually-driven profession.A" - Elizabeth Guffey, Professor of Art History, School of Humanities, Purchase College, State University of New York, and Editor, Design and Culture "With a reworking of the book's narrative structure and inclusion of ways in which the concept and power of design have mutated in the seven years since its first publication, this book remains an essential addition to the bookshelves of designers, design students and those for whom design-thinking is important." - Jamie Brassett, MA Course Director and Subject Leader, Central St Martin's Functioning as a superb overview of the ways in which design issues affected the modern world (from the 18th century until now) Raizman has successfully created - the foremost text for those well versed in design history while also presenting the general public with a comprehensive, informed, extremely well illustrated volume that will stand the test of time.A" - Gabriel P. Weisberg, Professor of Art History, Design and Graphic Art History, University of Minnesota This book offers a fascinating and authoritative cross-disciplinary description of the past 250 years of design history. The text moves effortlessly between typography, graphic design, fashion, furniture design, architecture, and many other disciplines. It is exemplary because of its balanced prioritisation of historical events and factors and its rich contextualisation. It is an excellent textbook for teachers and students in universities, academies and design schools and a fine introduction for readers with an interest in design, with whom it has already, deservedly, found an audience.A" - Ida Engholm, Associate Professor, Danish Centre for Design Research, The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Copenhagen Incorporating architecture, graphic design, product design, typography, studio craft, furniture design and fashion design, seamlessly contextualized through both the "fine arts" canon and popular culture of their respective era, Raizman's History of Modern Design is an invaluable resource for not only understanding design history, but its relevance to cultural history. The host of new illustrations and up-to-the-minute writing on contemporary issues in design only improve upon Raizman's winning approach.A" - Maria Elena Buszek, Assistant Professor of Art History School of Liberal Arts, Kansas City Art Institute
