The New Urban Landscape

The Redefinition of City Form in Nineteenth-Century America

About the Author

David Schuyler is a professor of American studies at Franklin and Marshall College. He is the author of The New Urban Landscape: The Redefinition of City Form in Nineteenth-Century America and coeditor of three volumes of the Frederick Law Olmsted Papers, the most recent of which is The Years of Olmsted, Vaux & Company, 1865-1874, all available from Johns Hopkins.

Reviews

The best single volume on nineteenth-century park development, and no existing work describes the origins and evolution of the naturalistic vision as capably as The New Urban Landscape. Moreover, Schuyler handles his subject with admirable economy and grace.

- Reviews in American History

An important contribution to our understanding of a design perspective that fostered a strong American heritage of urban parks and suburban spaces.
