Editorial Reviews


This collection . . . provides insight into the political and legislative manoeuvres that help prevent the further proliferation of suburban sprawl. (Regional Studies)

This an excellent volume of interest to anyone—academics and students—wishing to gain a better understanding of the origins, implications of, and responses to, urban sprawl in the U.S. from a wide variety of perspectives informed by both theoretical debate and empirical case studies. The chapters are interspersed with interviews with practitioners and politicians with an interest in urban planning. These give an extra insight into the origins of the smart growth movement and the cultural, political, and social obstacles it faces in its quest to build 'liveable' communities, as well as bringing to light some successful attempts to do just this. (Nick Parsons, Cardiff University Urban Studies, Vol. 42 April 2005)
