His books are simply excellent. Here is a list from Wikipedia:

In 1983, Brumfield, a former generalist in Slavic studies, made a name for himself in the history of architecture with his first book, L’or d’azur: mille ans d’architecture russe. It was followed by The Origins of Modernism in Russian Architecture (1991), Russian Housing in the Modern Era: Design and Social History (1993), A History of Russian Architecture (1993, that year’s notable book[4] and a bestseller[5] according to the New York Times), Lost Russia: Photographing the Ruins of Russian Architecture (1995), Landmarks of Russian Architecture: A Photographic Survey (1997) and Commerce in Russian urban culture: 1861-1914 (English edition 2001, Russian edition 2000) .

Here is an excerpt from the Russia and India Report article:

Yet the region’s richest concentration of traditional building art is found in Khokhlovka. In comparison with other open-air museums like Malye Korely, Khokhlovka Museum looks austere. Yet this austere beauty, with its landscape of the Kama River, is deeply characteristic of the lands of Perm. A visit to Khokhlovka will give a human insight into the folk culture of the Northwest Urals.
