Books By Author Robert Fishman

Sprawl and Suburbia by Robert Fishman Sprawl and Suburbia, Hardback (November 2005)

Brings together thinkers in the field to present in-depth diagnosis and critical analysis of the physical and social realities of exurban sprawl. These essays call for architects, urban planners, and landscape designers to work at mitigating the impact of sprawl on land and resources and improving the residential and commercial built environment.

Fragmented Metropolis by Robert Fishman Fragmented Metropolis, Paperback (June 1993)

A history of Los Angeles from its beginnings as an agricultural village of fewer than 2,000 people to its emergence as a metropolis of more than 2 million in 1930 - a city whose distinctive structure, character, and culture foreshadowed much of the development of urban America after World War II.

Urban Utopias in the Twentieth Century by Robert Fishman Urban Utopias in the Twentieth Century, Paperback (January 1982)

As Robert Fishman writes of three of urban planning's greatest visionaries, Ebenezer Howard, Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier, they 'hated the cities of their time with an overwhelming passion. The metropolis was the counter-image of their ideal cities, the hell that inspired their heavens.'
