Book Review Of Toward The Planned City: Germany, Britain, The United States And France, 1780-1914, John Mullin

John R. Mullin

Anthony Sutcliffe's new book, Toward The Planned City: Germany, Britain, The United States and France, 1780-1914, represents a major contribution in correcting this shortcoming.

Henry Ford And Field And Factory: An Analysis Of The Ford Sponsored Village Industries - Experiment In Michigan, 1918-1941, John R. Mullin

John R. Mullin

Between 1916 and 1941, Henry Ford embarked on an effort to decentralize the production facilities of the Ford Motor Company. One component of this effort was an experiment in which he located seventeen small factories, called Village Industries, in rural areas throughout southeastern Michigan. These factories were designed to utilize water power in the production of sub-assembly parts for Ford's main assembly plants and were intended to provide jobs for rural residents. Ford endeavored to develop a sense of "field and factory" in these plants by training rural workers in the latest technological advances, allowing them release time to ...

American Perceptions Of German City Planning At The Turn Of The Century, John Mullin Jan 1976

American Perceptions Of German City Planning At The Turn Of The Century, John Mullin

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

The German city in the late 1800's was a victim of many of the malaises that had struck earlier in the century in Britain and the United States. Rapid industrialization, improved transportation networks, and massive urbanization contributed to the creation of overcrowded, slum-like, disease-ridden cities throughout the nation.

In a cultural-political sense, they were perceived by the ruling authorities as being corrupt, anti-volklich and centers of the much feared socialist movement. For the greater part of the century, the city had been neglected by both the ...
