The first 30 years of the twentieth century was the crucible in which modern society and culture were formed. In much of Europe social democracy emerged as a dominant force in politics; the housing of the working class was recognised as a legitimate responsibility of the state; and architecture - hitherto largely the preserve of the leisured class - was transformed into the vehicle for delivering the transformation of society. Beginning in Britain before the First World War, the pattern was to be repeated, to a greater or lesser extent, in the years that followed across much of Europe and, indeed, the world. This is the first book to explore this new architecture of housing as an international phenomenon. The central figure was Raymond Unwin, the principal designer of the pioneering schemes of Letchworth Garden City and Hampstead Garden Suburb, who after the First World War became chief architect at the Ministry of Health and chairman of the Building Research Station. Unwin's garden suburb model was adopted by the British government for its experiments in social housing during and after the First World War. It was also highly influential on the mainland of Europe, where it formed the reference point for modernist architects such as Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius and Ernst May. Theories of modern production developed by Henry Ford and FW Taylor meshed with transcendentalist ideas about new ways of living to bring about a revolution in the theory and practice of housing worldwide. The accompanying CD makes widely accessible for the first time key documents from this period. These include not only writings on housing and town planning by Raymond Unwin and others but also official publications including the Tudor Walters Report, the reports of the Womens' Housing Sub-Committee and reports from the Building Research Station.

The life of John Davenport, who co-founded the colony of New Haven, has long been overshadowed by his reputation as the most draconian of all Puritan leaders in New England—a reputation he earned due to his opposition to many of the changes that were transforming New England in the post-Restoration era. In this first biography of Davenport, Francis J. Bremer shows that he was in many ways actually a remarkably progressive leader for his time, with a strong commitment to education for both women and men, a vibrant interest in new science, and a dedication to promoting and upholding democratic principles in his congregation at a time when many other Puritan clergymen were emphasizing the power of their office above all else. Bremer’s enlightening and accessible biography of an important figure in New England history provides a unique perspective on the seventeenth-century transatlantic Puritan movement.

Daniel H. Burnham discovers the foundations of twentieth-century American architecture in the life and work of a man who dominated his era like few others: as an architect, city planner, businessman, philanthropist, and civic leader. Despite his importance to twentieth-century architecture, there are no monographs in print that cover such a full range of this extraordinary figure's work. Burnham helped create the Chicago school of architecture and built over 200 buildings in the city. With the famous Reliance Building, he heralded the glass skyscrapers of the twentieth century. His firm was one of the largest architectural firms in the world. D. H. Burnham and Company created such monumental buildings in Chicago as the famous Monadnock, Rand-McNally, and Rookery buildings, the Marshall Field Store, and the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as the Flatiron building in New York and Union Station in Washington, D.C., all of which are fully illustrated here and newly analyzed. Aside from his work as an architect, Burnham was one of the founders of the City Beautiful movement, which grew out of an urgent turn-of-the-century need for chaotically growing American cities to develop on a more rational, planned scale. The City Beautiful movement ideas included beautifully designed Beaux-Arts buildings, increased park areas, better living conditions, and improved transportation. Included here is material on the World's Colombian Exposition of 1893, often considered the start of the movement; the 1901 Plan for Washington, D.C., developed in conjunction with Frederick Law Olmsted and Charles McKim of McKim Mead & White; and the Chicago Plan of 1909, which was so successful that after its publication he received requests to design twenty other American cities. This deluxe book fully explores all aspects of his work, the legacy of which lives on in the form of outstanding buildings, city plans, and cultural institutions, all still very much in use today.
