Was modernist architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe a Nazi sympathizer? Or did he leave Germany because of his opposition to the regime? The author concludes that neither is the case, depicting Mies as devoted exclusively to his art and holding himself aloof from all practical matters. ``This dense, heavily footnoted study will reward mainly those fervently interested in the resolution of the question of Mies's years in Berlin and in the interaction between the Nazis and the arts,'' determined PW . Illustrated. (Sept.)
