"An ambitious and intelligent book... Relph takes seriously the ideals and intentions of those who have created the urban landscapes in which most of us now live. He’s not written a satire. Still, the story he’s telling is heavy with irony. Never in the history of human hopes have so many high-minded men and women worked so hard, and dreamed so passionately, with such dubious results."

"Brings together urban history, urban form, public planning history, the literature of utopianism, and the architecture of cities in an intelligent, coherent, lively, and controversial portrayal of the evolution of the physical characteristics of Anglo-American urban environments since 1880."
