From the Publisher
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.
