Abstract
 
Description
Vast, organic and profound, THE CITY IN HISTORY is Lewis Mumford's crowning achievement. In it he traces the evolution of towns, from the primitive cave-shrines and burial tombs of palaeolithic man to the spawling megalopolis of today. But his book is more than history; it is both panoramic overview and sharply focused analysis of the city and all its glorious manifestations; the arts, architecture, crafts, religions, laws, pastimes, and politics that have created, and been created by, the city. - from Amzon
