Books on Cities

Thanks to my master’s in Urban and Regional Planning, this is a very difficult list for me to compile.

The City in History: It’s origins, It’s Transformations, and It’s Prospects by Lewis Mumford.  Mr. Mumford is a hero of mine, his clarity of mind and prose are an inspiration.

Natures Metropolis – Simply the best history of how capitalist cities transform the environment around them. About the development of Chicago: Canals, Railroads, & NY financiers plus lumber, pigs, wheat, and supermarkets. Highly recommended, I can’t recommend this book more.

Utopia

The Power Broker — This really the history of the most important Urban Planner in American History, who started out in the NY Park department building “Parkways”
