This is a history of the ideas, events and personalities that shaped the cities of the world during the 20th century. The author shows the influence of the anarchist ideals of Reclus and Kropotkin in the work of Howard, Geddes and Lloyd Wright which found expression in garden cities and community planning. He contrasts this with the totalitarian vision of Le Corbusier which, spurned by Mussolini and Stalin, was enthusiastically taken up by city authorities in Europe and America. He explores the cities of Brasilia and Chandigarh and seeks the origins of the high-rise slums and vandalized spaces that afflict the lives of so many people.
