Product description

Review

Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Review Award for Non-Fiction

"Learned, iconoclastic and exciting . . . Jacobs' diagnosis of the decay of cities in an increasingly integrated world economy is on the mark."--The New York Times Book Review

"Jacobs' book is inspired, idiosyncratic and personal . . . It is written with verve and humor; for a work of embattled theory, it is wonderfully concrete, and its leaps are breathtaking."--Los Angeles Times

"Not only comprehensible but entertaining. . . . Like Mrs. Jacobs' other books, it offers a concrete approach to an abstract and elusive subject. That, all by itself, makes for an intoxicating experience."--The New York Times

From the Back Cover

'Jacobs' book is inspired, idiosyncratic and personal... It is written with verve and humor; for a work of embattled theory, it is wonderfully concrete, and its leaps are breathtaking.' - Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times.
