Thirty years after its publication, The Death and Life of Great American Cities was described by The New York Times as "perhaps the most influential single work in the history of town planning….[It] can also be seen in a much larger context. It is first of all a work of literature; the descriptions of street life as a kind of ballet and the bitingly satiric account of traditional planning theory can still be read for pleasure even by those who long ago absorbed and appropriated the book's arguments."

Vintage City | 1992/1961 | ISBN: 067974195X 9780679741954 | 473 pages | PDF | 110 MB

A direct and fundamentally optimistic indictment of the short-sightedness and intellectual arrogance that has characterized much of urban planning in this century, this book has, since its first publication in 1961, become the standard against which all endeavors in that field are measured. This book is an attack on current methods of city planning and re-building. It is also an explanation of new principles and an argument for different methods from those now in use.

Gary, the Most American of All American Cities (repost)

S. Paul O'Hara, "Gary, the Most American of All American Cities"
English | ISBN 10: 0253355982 | 2011 | PDF | 208 pages | 3.4 MB

U.S. Steel created Gary, Indiana. The new steel plant and town built on the site in 1906 were at once a triumph of industrial capitalism and a bold experiment in urban planning. Gary became the canvas onto which the American public projected its hopes and fears about modern, industrial society. In its prime, Gary was known as "the magic city," "steel's greatest achievement," and "an industrial utopia"; later it would be called "the very model of urban decay." S. Paul O'Hara traces this stark reversal of fortune and reveals America's changing expectations. He delivers a riveting account of the boom or bust mentality of American industrialism from the turn of the 20th century to the present day.
