Lewis Mumford, a Life

£5.99

Product description

Malcolm Cowley called Lewis Mumford "the last of the great humanists", and, indeed, in more than six decades of writing, Mumford made contributions to history; philosophy;literary, art, and architectural criticism; urban planning; and the study of technology. The author of some thirty books, Mumford produced a body of work almost unequaled in his century for its range and richness, and had contact with the most important mind of our era. Born in New York, in 1985, Mumford used the city iteself as his "university". Through his own experience and powers of observation, he accumulated a vast breadth of knowledge that served as the basis for books such as, Sticks and Stones, The City in History, and Technics and Civilization. He is perhaps the world's foremost authority on cities, architecutre, and technology, and has recieved nearly every major intellectual award, including the National Medal for the Arts.
