provides both an academic and professional exposition
on Brasilia. The evolution of the city, its history, architecture
and the city's sociology of development over a few decades are
highlighted. In almost 400 pages, it is a lot. Of course
the book could go on and on and please every reader, but
that would not be necessary. The book provides adequate
information for most readers on many facets of the city's
development. It certainly was recommended to me by a good professor,
and it meets my standard as a city planner. Adequate pictures. Great book.
