Kostof follows The City Shaped with a brilliant study of the component parts that make up urban life. All cities consist of certain basic elements--streets, parks, public places, and boundaries--and it is to these day-to-day pieces of urban experience that this book turns, providing a fascinating understanding of walls, fortifications, placement of green space, and the fringe areas where city and country meet. Illustrations.
