"The publication of this book by the students of the Department of Landscape Architecture at Harvard University marks a significant change in perception of the urban landscape. Planning for an urban environment cannot be successful unless it incorporates an understanding of the impact of topography, climate, urban values, and the forces of the marketplace in shaping cities. If the continuity of benign urban change is to be established, planners and designers will have to begin with a clearer understanding of the principles of urban history and greater knowledge of the development of their communities. In this respect, this book is a very important step in the right direction. Preservation of urban open spaces depends upon an understanding of their natural origins and of the historical record of human intervention. This book, using a combination of maps, pictures, and text, provides a graphic account of the impact of people on one particular environment. " Additioinal authors: Douglas C. Allen, Jane S. Brooks, Janet Burns, Michael Friedman, Pat Rodgers, and John Wieneke. About two dozen maps illustrate the changes, from 1600 to 1980, progressing, by date, through the book. In addition there are dozens of b/w photos and painting reproductions.
