JACOBS, Allan B., Elizabeth MacDONALD, and Yodan ROFE. The Boulevard Book :History, Evolution, Design of Multiway Boulevards . Cambridge, MA: The MIT Press, (2002). Pp. (6),[vii]-x,[1]-257,(5). Illustrated. Illustrated endpa pers. Large square 8vo, cream cloth with silver lettering to spine. "First built in Europe and grandly imported to the United States in the mid-nineteenth century, the classic multiway boulevard has been in decline for many years, victim of a narrowly focused approach to street design that views unencumbered vehicular traffic flow as the highest priority. The American preoccupation with destination and speed has made multiway boulevards increasingly rare as artifacts of the urban landscape. This book reintroduces the boulevard, tree-lined and with separate realms for through traffic and for slow-paced vehicular-pedestrian movement, as an important and often crucial feature of both historic and contemporary cities. It presents more than fifty boulevards -- as varied as Avenue Montaigne, in Paris; C.G. Road, in Ahmedabad, India; and The Esplenade, in Chico, California -- celebrating their usefulness and beauty. It discusses their history and evolution, the misconceptions that led to their near-demise in the United States, and their potential as a modern street type." - from the dj.
