Considering each city as a whole, this book presents the profoundly different roles of gardens in cultural development and social life. Gardems from Roman antiquity to approximately 1850 are considered, whether in China, India, the Ottoman Empire, Europe, or the United States. Urban planning is investigated in contemporary Marrakech, Stockholm, Tokyo, Kerala (India), historic Suzhou (China), and in the U.S. New Towns of the 1960s.
