Sinopsis: In Cities at War in Early Modern Europe, Martha Pollak offers a pan-European, richly illustrated study of early modern military urbanism, an international style of urban design characterized by uniformity, geometrical clarity, architectural economy, and unadorned monumentality. Pollak examines this new urbanism as visualized by engravers, painters, and cartographers in accurate plans and powerful panoramic views.
'Martha Pollak has produced a deeply researched study, with a cascade of details for the experts. Its ambitious coverage will rightly turn it, I suspect, into a major reference work.' Lauro Martines, The Times Literary Supplement
'The level of erudition is superb, as Pollak condenses roughly three hundred years of pan-European history into a manageable 350-page work. It is full of interesting detail and wonderful examples.' Robert Tiegs, H-War
