Description

Fifty years after the publication of The Death and Life of Great American Cities, Jane Jacobs is perhaps the most widely read urbanist ever. Her ideas contributed to the wholesale transformation of contemporary planning.

This book reminds us of the full range and complexity of her work and offers thoughtful critiques on the consequences of her ideas for cities and planning today. Contributors include urbanists, planners, and scholars, including Thomas Campanella, Jill L. Grant, Richard Harris, Nathan Cherry, Peter L. Laurence, Jane M. Jacobs, and others.

"With this eye-opening book, Jane Jacobs finally begins to receive the thorough reconsideration for which she has long been overdue. For two generations, Jacobs and her ideas have been flattened into formula, turning her into a simplified figure casually invoked by all sorts, from neighbourhood activists to new urbanist planners. It's high time that her work and its world-spanning influence on city life got the kind of searching, revitalizing attention found in this excellent collection."

- Carlos Rotella, Boston College; author of October Cities
