cover The City Reader

The third edition of "City Reader" juxtaposes the very best of publications on the city. It has been extensively updated to reflect the latest thinking on globalization, information technology and urban theory. Classic writings from such authors as Lewis Mumford, Jane Jacobs and Le Corbusier, meet the best contemporary writings of, among others, Peter Hall, Saskia Sassen and Manuel Castells. Fifty generous selections are included: a combination of 34 readings from the second edition and 16 entirely new selections. Structured to aid student understanding, the anthology features main and part introductions, as well as individual introductions to the selected articles. The latter contain a brief intellectual biography and a review of the author's writings and related literature. Furthermore, they provide an explanation of how the piece fits into the broader context of urban history and practice, competing ideological perspectives on the city and the major current debates concerning race and gender, global restructuring, sustainable urban development and the impact of technology and postmodernism. The "City Reader" provides the comprehensive mapping of the terrain of "Urban Studies", old and new and is illustrated with over 40 photographs. Book Info

architecture books and design books
Book Description
For almost two centuries Americans have been moving to the suburbs in search of affordable family housing, unspoiled nature, and small-town sociability—only to find that their leafy new neighborhoods are part of the growing metropolitan sprawl. It is to this contested cultural landscape, where most Americans now live, that Dolores Hayden draws our attention.

From nineteenth-century utopian communities and elite picturesque enclaves to early twentieth-century streetcar subdivisions and owner-built tracts to the vast postwar sitcom suburbs and the subsidized malls and office parks that followed (on a scale that earlier builders could never have imagined), Hayden reveals the cultural and economic patterns that have brought us to the present. She explores the interplay of natural and built environments, the complex antagonisms between real-estate developers and suburban residents, the hidden role of federal government, and the religious and ideological overtones of the “American dream” embedded in the suburbs. Hayden asks hard questions about who has benefited from the suburban building process and about “smart” growth and “green” building. And she makes a strong case for the revitalization of existing neighborhoods in place of unchecked new growth on rural fringes. Few readers will see our ubiquitous suburbs in the same way again.
