general note
"The London School of Economics has been fortunate to find in the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft (AHG) a fellow traveller, with whom we share a passion for cities and social progress. Since 2005, the Urban Age project and the associated LSE Cities research centre has benefited from the patronage of three generations of Deutsche Bank's leadership."
"Shaping Cities in an Urban Age is the third and final addition to Phaidon's hugely successful Urban age series, published in collaboration with the London School of Economics (LSE). Generously illustrated with photographs, visual data, and statistics, and featuring a series of essays written by leading people in their fields, Shaping Cities in an Urban Age addresses our most urgent contemporary and future urban issues by examining a set of key forces that have combined to create the city as we know it today."--Publisher's website.
