Review:



"[This] is a large volume made up of extended essays by four Italian urbanists who have been studying the United States in some depth.... Each of the writers deploys an economic interpretation that rests partially on Marx and neo-Marxism, though the results are not uncomfortably doctrinaire. Well-illustrated and thoroughly annotated, this book should attract the inquisitive urbanite, its easy narrative style making the more technical analyses quite palatable."
- Metropolis
