Format: Paperback
As a first year Urban Planner, this book was on the required readings list for our course. This book gave me the edge to all my fellow students because it provided a detailed sample through a historical and progressive manner. It provides the fundamentals of the great thinkers in Urban Planning. It also covered and introduced me to further research on areas such as design and sociology, promoting further personal research.
As a second year student, this book can always be seen in my bibliography, and is always the first thing I head towards for a brief history on any concepts that are raised in my lecturers.
This book can be seen as THE general summary of Urban Planning.

Format: Paperback
Legates and Stout do an excellent job of compiling and briefly explaining many seminal writings on cities. There is a lot to read here and I'm not yet finished. But this heavy book is full of informative, interesting and fun writings and provides an excellent introduction to the study of cities. This is essential reading for students of Urban Form, Architecture, and the Social Sciences. Includes Le Corbusier, Patrick Geddes, Jane Jacobs, Lewis Mumford, J.B. Jackson, Witold Rybczynski and many others.

A must read for anyone who enjoys cities! Oct. 26 2006
By The Intellectual - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a very interesting collection of essays from prominent intellectuals who have shown concern over the development of cities in various aspects, whether it be economics, sociology, or other fields.

Excellent for anyone interested in urbanism, it's problems, it's development, it's future.

The book focuses heavily on U.S. cities, particularly Los Angeles and New York. It would have been nice if the book would had included articles on other large cities in the world.

Despite this, the book is an excellent read which encourages the reader to rethink the way he/she sees the city.
