Brings together representative selections of Mumford's major writings on the central concerns of his life: cities, architecture, technology, and American culture. The author of many articles and more than 30 books, Mumford--whom Malcolm Cowley called "the last of the great humanists"--has shaped a number of public policy debates, writing on urban development, transportation policy, land planning, the environment, nuclear disarmament, and the problems and promise of technology.
