Book ID: 72057

Dissatisfied with the world we live in, we have been longing since time immemorial for two opposing environments: the peaceful garden--a carefree paradise--and the New City--a harmonious community. For Gunther Feuerstein, all these cities and towns, though only fictitious, have long since been built, and he strolls through them together with the architects, planners, writers, and philosophers.
