Product description


“As compelling and important as Jane Jacobs's The Death and Life of Great American Cities and Venturi, Brown, and Izenour's Learning from Las Vegas . . . Everyone who cares about the future of our American way of life should read this book.” ―ROBERT A. M. STERN, Dean, Yale School of Architecture

“Among the wittiest and most perceptive books about sprawl. You couldn't ask for a better trio to guide you through any part of the American built environment.” ―HAROLD HENDERSON, Planning
