Editorial Reviews


'...a labour of love and a major contribution to the burgeoning international will fill an evident gap in the available scholarship.' - Peter Hall, University College, London

...a work of comparative history at its best. There are no false comparisons or wide-ranging generalisations. Instead there is a meticulous review... magnificiently produced, the quality of illustrations is outstandingly good and the author has been given space for text and notes which makes it extremely easy to use. Nothing but praise and thanks to the author for a work which will give so much pleasure and instruction.

'Planning Europe's Capital Cities will also, as mentioned by Peter Hall in the forword, 'throw light on great planners whose reputations have too long laid in their own lands and languages'. It will also inform visitors as to how many features, which now seem quintessential characteristics of the cultural heritage of many European cities, were created at the time.' - Claude Chaline, Town Planning Review

Hall's book is a useful resource for understanding the challenges faced by urban planners of large cities in the nineteenth century, and it is valuable as a starting point for scholars wishing to pursue further study of urban planning in nineteenth century Europe. - Erik C. Maiershofer, H-Urban
