The garden city suburb. Another attempt at imposing an order to the way people congregate in cities. The goal always being to create a Utopian world.

This one is less of a socialist slant, more of a capitalist try at things, no more successful.
Brad Cramer
A classic in city planning history. Howard's ideas began the "garden city" movement in England and led to the "new towns" movement here in the United States. The book itself is interesting and yet tediously boring at the same time. It gave me a better appreciation of why socialism may have seemed to appealing to those in idustrialized cities following the industrial revolution.
Howard waxes idealistic and is a bit repetitive, but considering how many of his ideas still exist in planning today in some form or another this little book is still worth the read for anyone interested in planning.

Ahead of it's time, influential.

Sir Ebenezer Howard is known for his publication Garden Cities of To-morrow (1898), the description of a utopian city in which man lives harmoniously together with the rest of nature. The publication led to the founding of the Garden city movement, that realized several Garden Cities in Great Britain at the beginning of the Twentieth Century.
