Early Reviews of Paris Reborn

Reviews of Paris Reborn have begun appearing. Here are some excerpts:

“Kirkland is an able navigator of architectural history—vivid descriptions abound, and the evolution of the city’s infrastructure, public spaces, and other amenities is a testament to the oft overlooked reign of Napoleon III. Lovers of the City of Light and urban planners alike will find Kirkland’s survey illuminating.” Publishers Weekly

“Fascinating and highly readable, this is strongly recommended for Francophiles, travelers, and students of urban history and planning.” Library Journal

“A solid retelling of an always-interesting tale of the first great urban-planning achievement.” Kirkus Review
