Summary "The immense problems confronting American design derive not only from 'the mediocrity of taste or corruptions of practice, in the public at large and within the design professions, but [also from] the immense scale and challenging complexity of the opportunities now open to the designer, the difficulty of defining the standards that should govern creative design in an expanding and changing society, and the difficulty of establishing the authority - institutionalizing the observance - of such standards in an industrial and democratic community'."--Back cover.
