6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Tirs Abril (tirs@conexis.es) on January 20, 1999
Format: Hardcover
A very interesting study that does not only talk about a part of the History of France: it also demonstrates with vivid examples that a city is a living being by itself, which is not only transformed by its inhabitants but transforms and influences them as well. Paris and the Parisians are two species living in symbiosis, and Trout's excellent work about "historical socio-urbanism" gives us both a detailed view of baroque Paris and an interesting insight about our own present-day cities and our own relationship with them, making us learn that the man-city interaction works in both directions.
