The City in History by Lewis Mumford.

Published 2001 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

ISBN: 978-0156180351

The Recommend:

Okay, so it was first published in 1961, and I first read it in 2003.

But not only is it a classic, it’s more to the point today than ever before: “What makes the city in fact is the common interest in justice and the common aim, that of providing the good life.”

No kidding.
