"This selection of groundbreaking essays offers a significant and long overdue reassessment of the aims and intentions of European architecture and urbanism over the period 1880-1960. It pursues those stimuli to human creativity - myth, history, spirituality - which have not been admitted to the standard histories of twentieth-century architecture and urbanism. Nine chapters by distinguished scholars focus on the city as the dominant generator of social, political and cultural institutions and structures in late nineteenth and twentieth-century Europe"--Publisher description.
