Modern urbanization is intimately linked with contemporary Jewish history, and this volume, the fifteenth in this acclaimed series, looks at the diverse connections. Spanning a wide range of topics, the volume includes essays on the Jewish communities in New York and St. Petersburg, on Orthodox Jews in the city, on Jewish-Christian relations within the urban context, on klezmer music, on the impact of urbanization on German Jewish history, and on the first "Hebrew city," Tel-Aviv. The volume also includes an extensive collection of reviews of recent literature on Jewish history, culture, and society

During the nineteenth century many of Europe's capital cities were subject to major expansion and improvement schemes. From Vienna's Ringstrasse to the boulevards of Paris, the townscapes which emerged still shape today's cities and are an inalienable part of European cultural heritage.In Planning Europe's Capital Cities, Thomas Hall examines the planning process in fifteen of those cities and addresses the following questions: when and why did planning begin, and what problems was it meant to solve? who developed the projects, and how, and who made the decisions? what urban ideas are expressed in the projects? what were the legal consequences of the plans, and how did they actually affect subsequent urban development in the individual cities? what similarities or differences can be identified between the various schemes? how have such schemes affected the development of urban planning in general?His detailed analysis shows us that the capital city projects of the nineteenth century were central to the evolution of modern planning and of far greater impact and importance than the urban theories and experiments of the Utopians.

More than anywhere else in the world, Latin American capitals were influenced by the importation of European urban culture and urbanism. While the urban and planning history of some of these cities has been studied, particularly in Spanish, this is the first comprehensive work in English to describe the social and morphological evolution of the capital cities of Latin America, as the most conspicuous stages of the Europeanism during the post-colonial period. The transfer of urban ideas through European models and representatives is explored, showing how this importation lead to the development of urbanism as a discipline in the countries concerned. In his introductory chapters Arturo Almandoz provides a historical survey of Latin American urban development and reviews the period most influenced by European ideas -from mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century, after which American influence led to a very different, technically-based approach to planning. There follows a series of case studies devoted to individual cities, each extensively illustrated and written by authorities on the city concerned. The cities are Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Santiago de Chile; Mexico City, Lima; Havana, Caracas, San José.
