Suburban Sprawl: Private Decisions and Public Policy (Cities and Contemporary Society)by Wim Wiewel
Synopses & Reviews
Sprawl, or metropolitan de-concentration, has characterized urban development in America from it earliest days. This ground-breaking book combines historical, political, economic, geographic, and urban planning analysis to provide the most comprehensive overview of how and why urban sprawl occurs. It shows that all previous attempts to pin the blame on one or two causes totally miss the complex and interwoven character of public policy and private interests in creating today's urban form, and it explores policies that can be used to reduce sprawl or its negative consequences.
