Albuquerque: A City at the End of the World

Albuquerque: A City at the End of the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This impassioned book, both a loving description and a critique, defines urban values in a milieu that is rarely recognized as a city. Updated more than ten years after its initial publication, it is more relevant than ever to Albuquerque's future. A new chapter describes Albuquerque's recent development, placing it in the context of urban growth in the West.

Book News Annotation:

Viewing his adoptive city as one of "ongoing lost promise," Price (a columnist for the Albuquerque Tribune) argues that the major problem with Albuquerque, New Mexico is that it has failed to build on its own eccentric identity in building its urbanity. He views the foundations of a natural identity to exist in the multicultural flavor of the inhabitants and the ecological reality of the city's setting neither of which have been attended to by newcomers and boosters that have a "conquistador" mentality. First published in 1992, the work has been updated with a final chapter looking at the city's development over the past decade. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Updated more than ten years after its initial publication, this impassioned book is more relevant than ever to Albuquerque's future. "Illuminating, provocative. . . . a complex, intelligent study of urbanization through an intimate examination of Albuquerque. . . . an insightful, absorbing book."--El Palacio

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 185-189) and index.
