Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0070598088, Hardcover)

This work examines how street systems have changed in the USA, from the early 1880s to the 1990s. Organized by era, it shows the influence of the growth of technology, and the social responses to that technology. The authors present strategies, and argue for standardized street design.

"Streets and the Shaping of Towns and Cities traces the history of street design and layout, critiques the situation we are in today, and suggests alternatives that are less rigidly controlled, more flexible, and responsive to local conditions. Originally published in 1997, this edition includes a revised and updated introduction that addresses topics of current interest, as well as several new illustrations and a new appendix on narrow streets."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
