Shlomo Angel Reviews 'City of Light'

Professor Shlomo Angel recently reviewed 'City of Light: the Making of Modern Paris' by Rupert Christiansen in The Wall Street Journal.

Our cities will need massive retrofitting in this century, and we could use a new generation of farsighted civil servants certainly more transparent and more accountable than Haussmann to pursue the common good.
