Cities of Tomorrow: An Intellectual History of Urban Planning and Design in the Twentieth Century Reviews
Cities of Tomorrow is thoroughly researched. I have read several books on Cities and evolution of Cities, the culture, the work, the societies, the sense of community. I am studying what is a city, how the cities are understood. I am working on a solution to the NY and the damage that was done by Hurricane Sandy.
Better quality than I expected!
I would have given this history five starts but occasionally the articles were redundant. The organization of the chapters might be improved. A well written and readable textbook.
If you are interested in the history of the evolution process and planning of most of the modern day cities, this is the book!
You should read this book with the book "Twentieth Century Architecture" and it will give you more clear impression.
An atrocious, unreadable book by an author who appears to hate everything
In my opinion, the book was not in good conditions. It was in acceptable conditions.
Peter Hall (Professor of City and Regional Planning at UC Berkeley) has written many books on urban planning, and this 1988 book is a wonderful summary and history of various progressive "new cities" movements from 1880 to the present.
