2. Lewis Mumford: A Life
by Donald L. Miller

A New York Times Notable Book, Donald Miller’s engagingly written biography reveals Mumford’s full and fascinating life. Based on ten years of research and unprecedented access to original and private papers, Miller penetrates Mumford’s reserved public persona and takes in the complete man, his works as well as his days, as he struggles to transform the world — and his own life — in decades marked by unparalleled change. “Miller is an excellent critical guide to Mumford’s voluminous writing.” — The New Yorker
