The Perfect Christmas Gift For That Planner In Your Life

The Perfect Christmas Gift For That Planner In Your Life

California Planning & Development Report

How did the Garden City movement shape American cities in the 20th Century -- and how will Garden City ideas affect metropolitan America in the 21st Century?

Find out by buying the new book, FROM GARDEN CITY TO GREEN CITY: THE LEGACY OF EBENEZER HOWARD, from CP&DR/Solimar. It's the perfect Christmas gift for that planner in your life!

In this new volume of essays, some of the finest thinkers on modern city planning -- including William Fulton, Robert Fishman, Eugene Birch, Steven Ward, Pierre Clavel, and others -- discuss the impact on American cities of Ebenezer Howard's groundbreaking 1898 book, To-Morrow: A Peaceful Path to Real Reform.

Published on the one hundredth anniversary of Garden Cities of To-Morrow (1902), the more familiar version of Howard's pathbreaking book, the ten essays in this new volume place Howard's legacy in its historic context and show its continuing relevance for urban, regional, and environmental planners.

International in scope, with original and provocative scholarship, From Garden City to Green City -- which emerged from a symposium at Cornell University in 1998 -- is a tribute to Howard's ideals of cooperation, justice, and environmentalism in urban planning.

Reviews on From Garden City to Green City:

"From Garden City to Green City is a major contribution to the literature on planning history, written by some of its leading practitioners. Particularly significant is the way in which they trace changing ideas on planning for the car, from Radburn to the New Urbanism. This will be essential reading for all serious students."

--Sir Peter Hall, Bartlett School of Planning, University College London
