'Presents the latest thinking on the benefits and dangers of higher density urban living.' - Plan

'This collection is a valuable antidote to the trend to offer simplistic solutions to complex problems.' - The Architectural Review

'Scholarly and well edited...It will also be used as a whole or in parts as required reading for tertiary coursework in schools of planning, architecture, and urban designThe Compact City is a significant contribution to achieving sustainable urban forms.
