Book Description

April 1 2007
In Municipal Mind, Toronto’s Poet Laureate offers a blueprint for building sustainable cities in a global era, predicated on city soul. By weaving bold and savvy strategies for urban creativity and civic prosperity, together with a reasoned appeal for mutual respect, understanding and interaction among citizens, he persuades us that – in the delicate balancing of universal values and individual needs – cities can do far, far better. Municipal Mind offers up a whole new way of civic being and thinking that puts wonder before commerce and nothing before human encounter.

Product Description

Review

“This work is a beautifully crafted set of chatauquas that only a philosopher gifted with the power of poetry could deliver. It is an exhortation against the pathology of rules for the sake of control and an impassioned and eloquent plea for embracing the wonder of the random. Required reading for all citizens of the city.” (Ted Tyndorf, Chief Planner of the City of Toronto)
