Inhaltsangabe: 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, literature, art, architectural criticism, and urban planning. The author of some thirty books, Mumford produced a body of work almost unequaled in the twentieth century for its range and richness. A New York Times Notable Book, Donald Miller's engagingly written biography reveals Mumford's full and fascinating life. Based on ten years of research and unprecedented access to original and private papers, Miller penetrates Mumford's reserved public persona and takes in the complete man, his works as well as his days, as he struggles to transform the world -- and his own life -- in decades marked by unparalleled change. "Miller is an excellent critical guide to Mumford's voluminous writing." -- The New Yorker "A gracefully written biography." -- Francesca McKeon, San Francisco Chronicle "With this large, large-spirited life of Lewis Mumford ... Miller takes his place in the first rank of contemporary American biographers." -- David McCullough

Inhaltsangabe: A New York Times Notable Book, this widely acclaimed biography of the man who was perhaps the world's foremost authority on cities, architecture, & technology was written with unprecedented access to Lewis Mumford's personal papers. Miller neatly weaves together Mumford's public career & his private life, showing how utterly dependent each is upon the other. He clarifies in a way no one has both Mumford's genius & his immense importance to all of us in understanding our extraordinary times & civilization. Miller received Mumford's generous cooperation in writing this biography & the unfailing assistance of his wife Sophia.
