Cities of Tomorrow: An Intellectual History of Urban Planning and Design in The... Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cities of Tomorrow is a critical history of planning in theory and practice in the twentieth century, as well as of the social and economic problems and opportunities that gave rise to it. Trenchant, perceptive, global in coverage, this book is an unrivalled account of its crucial subject.

The third edition of Cities of Tomorrow is comprehensively revised to take account of abundant new literature published since its original appearance, and to view the 1990s in historical perspective. This is the definitive edition, reviewing the development of the modern planning movement over the entire span of the twentieth century.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [423]-480) and index.
