The Modern Metropolis: Its Origins, Growth, Characteristics, and Planning

Selected Essays of Hans Blumenfield


"The Modern Metropolis is an amazing book; amazing even when it is conceded that in effect it took twenty-five years to produce. It consists of thirty-three articles, which span its author's American professional career from 1943 to the present day. Some of them...were long ago established as classics. Others first appeared in obscurer places, or are published here for the first time. Bound together into one book, they give for the first time a true picture of the extraordinary intellectual range of Hans Blumenfeld, establishing him definitely as one of the giants of twentieth-century urban planning."
