Ranging from village planning in the primitive world to the most intricate urban planning proposals of our day, this new series explores the major epochs and areas in the history of cities and the ordering of man's environment. Each volume, copiously illustrated with photographs, plans, drawings and maps, analyzes the forms and designs of cities that evolved as solutions to the problems of men living in communities. The authors of the various volumes are historians concerned with the larger implications of architecture as a social art. Their purpose is to demonstrate how theory and practice responded to the way of life of a particular era.
