Paradise Planned: The Garden Suburb & the Modern City
By Robert A.M. Stern, David Fishman, and Jacob Tilove

Paradise Planned is the comprehensive, encyclopedic record of this movement, a vital contribution to architectural and planning history and an essential recourse for guiding the repair of the American townscape. Publisher: Monacelli
