Hegemann and Peets' classic work on city planning was first pubished in 1922. Today, their reference serves as one of the foundation texts for New Urbanism and associated movements. Civic Art presents over 1200 examples of urban planning principles spanning from classic Roman and Greek times through turn of the twentieth century American design. Hegemann and Peets' work provides a highly relevant context through which to evaluate modern city planning.
