Ancient Town-Planning

Publisher Description

The book is Ancient Town-Planning. The original lecture was written as a scholar's contribution to a modern movement. It looked on town planning as one of those new methods of social reform, which stand in somewhat sharp contrast with the usual aims of political parties and parliaments. The latter concern mainly the outward and public life of men as fellow-citizens in a state they involve such problems as Home Rule Disestablishment Protection. The newer ideals centre round the daily life of human beings in their domestic environment. Men and women or rather women and men have begun to demand that the health and housing and food and comfort of mankind and much else that not long ago seemed to lie outside the scope of legislation should be treated with as close attention and logic and intelligence as any of the older and more conventional problems of politicians. They will not leave even the tubes of babies' feeding-bottles to an off-hand opportunism.
