Series; Making of Europe. Physical description; xix, 243 p. : ill., maps ; 24 cm. Notes; Includes bibliographical references (p. 227-230) and index. Translated from the Italian. Contents; Emergence from the ancient world; the creation of a new urban system; the touching up of the urban environment; confrontation with the world; the difficult adjustment to the laws of perspective; the industrial city; Europe in the contemporary world. Summary; The history of the European city from the early Middle Ages until the present is also an account of the relationship between urban life and the history of ideas and culture. The author begins by discussing the survival of urban culture in the wake of the barbarian and Islamic invasions from the north and east, following the collapse of the Roman and Byzantine Empires. He continues with an examination of the great period of urban expansion between the 11th and 14th centuries, the growth of urban freedoms and the development of independent city civilizations in Flanders and Italy. The two centuries following the formation of the first European states brought concentrated power and influence to their capitals (Rome, Paris, Prague, London, Antwerp, Lisbon, Seville and Genoa). New ideas of national identity were reflected in the organization of traditional urban space. The conflict between city and country had emerged by the 16th century, and the author shows how this influenced the colonial towns of the two Americas. The book concludes with chapters on the effects of industrialization and modern transportation, in particular the impact of the car. Subjects; Cities and towns - Europe - History. Towns. History.

The book discusses the survival of urban culture following the barbarian invasions from the north and the Islamic from the east, after the collapse of the Roman and Byzantine Empires. It covers the great period of urban expansion between the eleventh and fourteenth centuries.

The two centuries following the formation of the first European states brought concentrated power and influence to their capitals. New ideas of national identity were reflected in the organization of traditional urban space. The conflict between city and country had emerged by the sixteenth century and the author shows how this influenced the colonial towns of the two Americas. The book concludes with chapters on the effects of industrialization and modern transportation.

Revue de presse :

"Leonardo Benevolo has achieved a remarkable double: he now only produces a convincing synthesis of the history of Europe′s cities since the early Middle Ages, but also avoids superficiality and false generalization . . . a most timely, distinguished and scholarly contribution to the literature on European urban history." The Geographical Journal "Leonardo Benevolo writes with energy and verve on the European city." The Times "Professor Benevolo′s extensively illustrated book reflects the author′s architectural expertise. He examines successfully the classical city, the medieval town and the drive for urban perfection in the Renaissance." History
