9780300095777: City: Urbanism and Its End

A Richard Ely Professor of Management argues that traditional notions of "city" are dead, as well as conventional ideas about how to fix urban problems, proposing to forgo billions in government aid in favor of stimulating the informal, less tangible elements that make urban life so dynamic and appealing.
