The Powers of Preservation: New Life for Urban Historic Places, published by McGraw-Hill in 1998

"Acclaimed architect and preservationist Arthur Cotton Moore has transformed America's cities in tangible ways, as his portfolio of restoration projects over the last three decades––exhibited in The Powers of Preservation: New Life for Urban Historic Places–– makes clear. From his first undertaking, Canal Square, a warehouse area in Washington, D.C. to the restoration of the Library of Congress in 1980, Moore has sought new uses for faded buildings; his thoughts on these endeavors and on the preservation movement are peppered with 100-odd color and b&w photos."
-- Publishers Weekly, 7/27/98

"When Moore strode through the Library of Congress in 1997 after the completion of its magnificent renovation, he surely felt a swirling mix of emotions. Charged with a redesign that would usher the library into the 21st century, Moore and his firm rose to the challenge, and the Library of Congress now stands as a beautifully preserved monument that will enhance the power of information for ages to come.

"Internationally recognized and a winner of numerous design awards, Moore has worked on many successful historic preservation projects in the United States. His book is a testament to his gift as a perceptive visionary; in it he looks at restoration, city preservation, the revitalization of downtowns, and the adaptation of existing buildings. Moore is not stodgy, either––he stresses the importance of preservation with a delightful sense of humor.

"Highly recommended for academic and public libraries."
