He began contributing to this field in the early 1920s, and his influence peaked between 1932 and 1937, when he was art critic for the New Yorker. This book, for the first time, assembles Mumford's important art criticism in a single volume. His columns bring wit and insight to bear on a range of artists, from establishment figures like Matisse and Brancusi to relatively new arrivals like Reginald Marsh and Georgia O'Keeffe. These articles provide an unusual window onto the New York art scene just as it was casting off provincialism in favor of a more international outlook. On a deeper level, the columns probe beneath the surface of modern art, revealing an alienation that Mumford believed symptomatic of a larger cultural disintegration. Many of the themes Mumford addresses overlap with those of his more familiar architectural criticism: the guiding role of the past in stimulating creativity in the present, the increasing congestion of the modern metropolis, the alarming lack of human control over modern technology, and the pressing need to restore organic balance to everyday living. Though he was open to new movements emanating from Europe, Mumford became the chief advocate of a progressive American modernism that was both socially aware and formally inventive+-+7868845705324114631ocn000277743book19520.53Mumford, LewisRoots of contemporary American architecture; a series of thirty-seven essays dating from the mid-nineteenth century to the presentHistory97437ocn000439935book19260.53Mumford, LewisThe golden day : a study in American literature and cultureCriticism, interpretation, etc96929ocn001122435book19000.59Mumford, LewisCity development; studies in disintegration and renewalContains a criticism of the L.C.C. plan for the county of London prepared by J.H.

Indeed, Mumford's writings have proved to be prescient, posing many challenging questions for architects and planners in a period of transition at the end of the twentieth century+-+30673967053244161ocn032822739book19950.70Luccarelli, MarkLewis Mumford and the ecological region : the politics of planningHistoryIn the first part of the book, Mark Luccarelli excavates the intellectual sources of Mumford's ideas. He shows how Mumford's notion of ecological regionalism reflected a tradition of ecological thinking that was most eloquently elaborated in the writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Walt Whitman. Instead of standing against modernity, Mumford linked this tradition to the potential of science for recovering a healthy relation to nature within the rubric of a participatory democracy. The value of Mumford's approach, the author argues, is his attempt to make his ideas speak to America, and to the possibilities for ecological planning inherent in the American civic tradition. Mumford proposed regional planning that would shape human life in response to the influences and critical forces of regional ecosystems; address over-urbanization and recontextualize cities in relation to nature; and take advantage of natural economies rather than economies of scale+-+46555872063243663ocn020056255book19900.73Fried, LewisMakers of the cityCriticism, interpretation, etc2942ocn023287110book19910.79Carrithers, Gale HMumford, Tate, Eiseley : watchers in the nightHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc2792ocn031411884book19950.79Mumford, LewisLewis Mumford and Patrick Geddes : the correspondenceRecords and correspondence+-+01546606951872ocn018576393book19880.90Novak, Frank GThe autobiographical writings of Lewis Mumford : a study in literary audacityCriticism, interpretation, etc1572ocn077476443book20070.88Mumford, Lewis"In old friendship" : the correspondence of Lewis Mumford and Henry A. Murray, 1928-1981Records and correspondence"Between 1928 and 1981 architectural and cultural critic Lewis Mumford exchanged nearly six hundred letters with Melville scholar and Harvard psychologist Henry A. Murray. "In Old Friendship" documents that interaction." "Covering fifty years of devoted camaraderie between two exceptional minds, the book offers insights into the intellectual frustrations behind their significant careers and the emotional needs that framed their vibrant, often dramatic lives. To Mumford, a writer who sought to change the course of world events, iconoclastic Murray became a welcome confidant, critic, mentor, and friend." "The letters reflect the wide range of public and private interests held by both men. Love's entanglements are aired alongside literary labors. By chronicling the private worlds of these intellectual icons, this volume emerges as a crucial research tool for students of American intellectual history and culture, literary criticism, urbanism, architecture, and political arenas such as World War II and the cold war. It offers a unique prism through which to observe the dramatic shifts in American society and culture in the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET+-+38668106351262ocn009431539book19830.92Mumford, LewisThe Lewis Mumford/David Liebovitz letters, 1923-1968Records and correspondence1022ocn214294364book19650.79Choay, FrançoiseL urbanisme : utopies et realites -une anthologie"Cette 'critique' de l'urbanisme est illustrée par une anthologie ... groupant les textes de trente-sept auteurs--de Fourier à Wright, de Marx à Jane Jacobs, de Ruskin à Xenakis"--P.
