Description

The unprecedented urbanization of the nineteenth century prompted a wide range of theoretical and empirical writings on the city. This set collects together some of the most significant writings on the city from 1898 to 1938. Primarily dealing with North America and the UK, the volumes, nonetheless reflect the experience of rapid urban growth, making them particularly relevant to many of the newly industrializing countries.
