A must read book!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The City in History: Its Origins, Its Transformations, and Its Prospects (Paperback)
I couldn't find this book in Europe. They told me that it was finished it would never be reprinted again!
When I had the chance to buy it form Amazon, I took it in a minute!
Mumford's opinion for the "City" is so clear and yet so original that even people with no scientific intrest in this book, will enjoy reading it.
He has wonderful examples and detailed studies on the history of cities starting from Egypt, Greece Rome and Middle Ages.
Its a unique historical work that everybody should have it in their library!
