The first, shorter, version of my article with a similar title in AA Files. The article by Beatriz Colomina, variously titled 'Battle Lines' and 'War on Architecture' has come to be accepted as authoritative. This article questions some of the basic assumptions in this article and demonstrates the unreliability of the article by Samir Rafi on which Colomina based her work.
