The Garden City Movement Up-To-Date, Hardback Book

The Garden City Movement Up-To-Date Hardback

Part of the Studies in International Planning History series


This work was written and compiled by the then Secretary of the Garden Cities and Town Planning Association in 1913.

It shows just how much the conception of the garden city had been broadened from Howard's original texts.

Indeed the Association's own name had been broadened to add the newly emergent practice and theory of town planning to the original focus.

Alongside the garden city, recognition is now given to the burgeoning numbers of garden suburbs and garden villages.

Many examples of these are identified and briefly described, including many which are small and now little known, greatly adding to the interest of the publication.

Even the underlying arguments for such developments differ.

Alongside the more altruistic arguments in favour of reform, there are now those which explicitly emphasise the need to ensure a healthy race to maintain the Empire.
