Praise

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
