Can there still be talk of a shared culture in the 'Family of Europe, ' or are the East and West estranged? This question is the main theme of this beautifully designed book that provides, through images and text, a critical examination of Eastern and Western European cities in light of the 2004 unification. In planning euphoria and the building of a completely new society based on rational and scientific principles, we can glimpse a mirroring of the ideas and views of Communist politicians, architects and urban planners. The city is used here as a vehicle for the exploration of these key issues
