In this classic book, now newly expanded, Elizabeth B. Kassler continues to give us what Katharine S. White, writing in The New Yorker, called "some of the wisest thoughts. . .on landscaping and gardening and on how the aesthetics and pressures of our time have affected the modern landscape artist." A new section of works designed after the book's original publication in 1964 shows how attitudes are changing since we have come to realize, over these two decades, that man is not this planet's lord, but a rude guest dangerously out of joint with his natural environment. Rather than reflecting this alienation or concocting meaningless formalities, a sensitive landscape designer can, Mrs. Kassler writes, "make the nature of nature accessible to our awareness and to our sense of lively participation."

An examination of the architectural world and its theories since the late 1960s in the context of social and political issues. It looks at a broad survey of buildings, but focuses on specific "megaprojects" as examples for discussion: the Disney empire and its amusement parks in the context of public space and the IBA in Berlin in the context of domestic space. Its discussion of the reshaping of urban environment focuses on London's Dockland, the most ambitious and politically sensitive development in postwar Britain. It also considers the work of lesser-known designers and women architects as well as famous international stars.
