Product Description


What Is a City? offers sensitive and nuanced explorations of the urban approached through themes of nature, mobility, community, and memory. This is a technically adept, keenly observed, and emotionally gripping work, standing at the cutting edge of urban analysis, interpretive method, and geographic conceptualization. - Robert W. Lake, author of Locational Conflict ""What Is a City? is a thematically and conceptually unified collection of essays about New Orleans and also about transcendent urban questions. I like this book."" - Richard Schein, editor of Landscape and Race in the United States
