The topic of streets and street design is of compelling interest today as public officials, developers, and community activists seek to reshape urban patterns to achieve more sustainable forms of growth and development. Streets and the Shaping of Towns and Cities traces ideas about street design and layout back to the early industrial era in London suburbs and then on through their institutionalization in housing and transportation planning in the United States. It critiques the situation we are in and suggests some ways out that are less rigidly controlled, more flexible, and responsive to local conditions. Originally published in 1997, this edition includes a new introduction that addresses topics of current interest including revised standards from the Institute of Transportation Engineers; changes in city plans and development standards following New Urbanist, Smart Growth, and sustainability principles; traffic calming; and ecologically oriented street design.

This collection of twenty-one essays, written by colleagues and former students of the architectural historian Spiro Kostof (1936-1991), presents case studies on Kostof's model of urban forms and fabrics. The essays are remarkably diverse: the range includes pre-Columbian Inca settlements, fourteenth-century Cairo, nineteenth-century New Orleans, and twentieth-century Tokyo ... The theme of the volume is that the street presents itself as the basic structuring device of a city's form and also as the locus of its civilization. Each essay is a detailed investigation of a single urban street with unique historical conditions. The authors' shared concern regarding anthropological, political, and technical aspects of street making coalesce into a critical discourse on urban space.

The Streets of Louth offers an A-Z history of virtually every road within the town, from ancient streets such as Upgate and Mercer Row through to modern residential developments such as Anthony Crescent. Designed for the general reader and anyone who has ever wondered how the streets of Louth have changed and developed over time, it not only looks at the archaeology, buildings and businesses of each of the individual streets, but also the people who used to live on them, from brewers and fish fryers through to jewellers and prostitutes. The book also makes use of local court reports from the nineteenth century to bring the Victorian history of the streets of Louth alive, with crimes and accidents recorded that range from the mundane to the truly shocking!
