The role of arts, culture etc. It is a book I will reread at some stage. As often happens when your reading several books at once, I found this book coupled with "The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers: Economic Change and Military Conflict from to " by Paul Kennedy and "Truth" by Hector Macdonald had a strange and powerful synergy. Macdonald talks about the slippery nature of truth and how difficult it is to make predictions and forecasts based on how we can look at what is happening at any particular time in diametrically different ways. Both Mumfords book just prior to the second world war and Kennedy's book just prior to the collapse of the soviet union were wonderful historical discussions of how we got to specific economic and social trends that brought us to a specific time.
There are no glaring misinterpretations I think in either Mumfords or Kennedy's work, yet the actual world we are now living in really is very different than they expected yet the trends they spotted are still relevant.

It is interesting hearing Mumford discussing how purely economic forces were driving policy in the s and the need to enhance social networking back then. Again like so many books one is reminded of how one has to bring a historical perspective to todays problems if we are not to confuse longterm trends with failures of any particular generation or government policy. The short term cycle between elections or even for the 24 hr news channels is not really the correct time interval needed to understand society trends.

Scholarly, reassuring authority with arguments built up from anecdotes and examples that lend convincing weight, but oddly sparse in conclusion; as if working at the wrong scale and yet not aware of the fact. Lots of amazing stories, ideas, history - I loved reading this book - but I could't help but feel that the general thrust of the arguments - that cities only ever worked at a certain size and humanity would be best pressed to organize itself into regional cities that do not trend into Scholarly, reassuring authority with arguments built up from anecdotes and examples that lend convincing weight, but oddly sparse in conclusion; as if working at the wrong scale and yet not aware of the fact.
Lots of amazing stories, ideas, history - I loved reading this book - but I could't help but feel that the general thrust of the arguments - that cities only ever worked at a certain size and humanity would be best pressed to organize itself into regional cities that do not trend into megapolises The book includes a life-cycle of cities, as though they were a species of animal metamorphosizing from one stage into the other as entirely known quantities.
I came to this book because I believe cities have to change and I wanted to learn more about how people think about cities. Instead I found a book written by someone who thinks they know everything about how cities work; and hoo boy does Lewis Mumford know a lot, but he is writing in , here. Time behind him is a book to be read from; time in front of him The rise and fall of fascism, the concentration of capital, the global distribution of industry to the most beneficial labor market We have to build cities differently now; thinking both in terms of economics and politics and trade and culture at a societal level, a complete reconsideration of energy generation and distribution and transit on a logistical and infrastructure level, but also at a level that incorporates human experience; wellness, community, privacy and growth.
All that has to take place against the backdrop of the real world and existing megacities; people have to want it, people have to invest in it; it has to make sense. A garden city is a wonderful concept but fails at the human level in today's society. Natural environments? Industry that does not make life a living hell of sooty and exhausting servitude?

Bring it on. The next era has to be made out of the current one.
The Culture of Cities looks at the sociological, political, and psychological implications of urban living. Nearly 80 years old from its original publication, the book anticipates many of the changes of the 20th century -- including efforts like Brasilia and planned cities -- as well as some nostalgia for the rural-focused 19th century country like.
Mumford looks at the rise of cities going back more than 1, years, focusing on how urban areas affected the political balance in a nation-state. Although he was writing contemporaneously with the rise of Nazism, the book focuses on a time before Hitler used the city as a symbol of power. Unfortunately, he was also too early to see some of the extraordinary advances in the second half of the 20th century, especially in communications, transportation, and infrastructure, that have had such an enormous impact on today's cities.
For readers new to urban planning, the Culture of Cities can be a bit dense, as it is packed with facts and references. Still, Mumford takes readers through history at a breakneck pace, showing how development has driven -- and been driven by -- every era. Even though it was first published over 70 years ago, The Culture of Cities is still incredibly relevant; maybe because, sadly, most of its optimistic predictions have yet to be realized. Clearly the product of a brilliant mind. Sep 26, Eric Hines marked it as to-read Shelves: cities.
