Abstract
 
Description
Although we face unique urban problems in our day, many of the strengths and weaknesses of our present cities have been inherited directly from the nineteenth century. Much has been written about the impact of the industrial revolution on urban centers, so Francoise Choay is inevitably dealing with many familiar issues in this book. Her analysis of nineteenth-century theory and practice with respect to the regularization and planning of cities has, however, a novelty about it which should permit us to see the accomplishments and frustrations of that century in a different light than usual. - from Amzon
