Praise

“A sweeping investigation of threats to urban life. . . . A thoughtful and useful consideration of the fate of cities in the age of Covid-19.” Kirkus

“This is a must-read for anyone interested in the health of cities and their residents. Glaeser and Cutler sift through the evidence to offer an incisive, engaging analysis of the real challenges posed by pandemics and other threats to urban life. Their clear and balanced policy prescriptions will protect cities from long COVID and help them emerge from the pandemic as resilient and vital as ever.” —Paulette Goddard, Professor of Urban Policy and Planning at NYU Wagner

Survival of the City is a smart and surprising account of how the modern metropolis can bounce back from the current crisis, and a compelling argument for sweeping policy change. The authors—one liberal, one conservative—are not ideologically aligned, but their differences yield fresh ideas and bursts of insight. I found myself learning from, arguing with, and thoroughly enjoying every part of this totally necessary book.” —Eric Klinenberg, Helen Gould Shepard Professor in the Social Sciences, New York University

“This fascinating book is about everything—the plague, COVID-19, obesity, robots, schools and more—all seen through the lens of the city, its past and future. It’s a gripping read for anyone, but especially those who are wondering just what is the place of the city in their post-pandemic lives.” —Emily Oster, Professor of Economics, Brown University
