MEDIA REVIEWS

"The City, Revisited is a major contribution to the history of thought on the three largest cities in the United States and a state-of-the-art appraisal of U.S. urban theory at the beginning of the twenty-first century. This remarkable volume not only provides much additional insight into the history and development of Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, the contributors both encapsulate and expand upon urban theories that will prove exceptionally useful to those interested in understanding patterns of development in other cities as well, both in the United States and around the world." -David Gladstone, University of New Orleans
