Amherst College: The Campus Guide is an architectural tour of one of North America's most prestigious liberal arts colleges. Founded in Western Massachusetts some two hundred years ago, the one thousand-acre campus is a living museum of architectural history, bearing the imprint of distinguished firms in architecture and landscape architecture: Frederick Law Olmsted; McKim, Mead & White; Benjamin Thompson; Edward Larrabee Barnes; Shepley Bulfinch; and Michael Van Valkenburgh. Organized as a series of six walks, the guideinterweaves the history of the college with the story of the campus's development. Newly commissioned photographs and a hand drawn pocket map enhance this engaging journey through Amherst's architecture, landscape, interior design, and sculpture.

Blair Kamin, a 1979 graduate of Amherst, is the Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic of the Chicago Tribune. His previous books includeWhy Architecture Matters: Lessons from Chicago.

Ralph Lieberman is an architectural historian and photographer. He was the photographer for Williams College: The Campus Guide and previously collaborated with Kamin onThe Gates of Harvard Yard.

Biddy Martin is the president of Amherst College

"Blair Kamin's newest book, Amherst College: The Campus Guide, paints a telling picture of his alma mater - with the buildings that populate it....Amherst College: The Campus Guide is designed to be read at home or taken out for a stroll around campus. There are six distinct walks, a series of bird's-eye maps and a fold-out ,too. The photography by Ralph Lieberman is crisp, telling and descriptive."
