Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First there was downtown. Then there were suburbs. Then there were malls. Then Americans launched the most sweeping change in 100 years in how they live, work, and play. The Edge City.

"Readable... a fascinating transcontinental tour... Mr. Garreau has the ability to categorize and clarify trends before they are apparent to the rest of us. His instincts are sharp, and his arguments are often persuasive... "Edge City.".. is a provocative introduction to demographic and business patterns that are likely to becom more important as the twenty-first century edges nearer." — "New York Times Book Review."

"Superb reporting." — "The Wall Street Journal."

"Fascinating... no one has explained the geographical, economic and sociological forces that have produced these 'new downtowns' as well as Garreau." — "Washington Post."

"Edge cities are America's next urban frontier, and Garreau's book is the best new guide to the territory." — "Plain Dealer."
