Following up on his earlier work Common Place , Kelbaugh (architecture and urban planning, U. of Michigan) suggests steps for implementing the concepts of New Urbanism on the American landscape. Based on ideals of community and sustainability, the New Urbanism seeks to downplay planning around the automobile, conserve natural resources, promote mixed usage areas, and visually fit the built environment into the natural environment. Although his topic is the American city in general, many examples are taken from Detroit and Seattle. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
