5.0 out of 5 stars The Emperor Wears No Clothes, Urban Style, 11 Sept. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Geography of Nowhere: Rise and Decline of America's Man-made Landscape (Paperback)
Mr. Kunstler writes about the rise and fall (and glimmerings of a new rise) of our urban landscape. In beautiful prose he provides overviews of important American events (my husband loved his two page synopsis of World War II) to explain why our communities lack a sense of community, why houses,buildings and streets built before World War II are charming, and why those post-WWI are not and what some people are doing about it. Reading this book made a passionate New Urbanist out of me - I haven't felt this way about an issue since I picketed the draft board in the early 70's. Buy one copy for you and one for your friend who develops strip malls, 7-11's and Big Box stores. Up against the wall, bauhaus!
