Editorial Reviews

Review

"When it was first published, The Last Landscape was radical stuff. As much as Silent Spring challenged American science to recognize its long-term responsibilities, Whyte's book asked communities, the government, and the design profession to do the same. Four decades later, this book is just as timely, the only difference is that the logic is now mainstream and the evidence is overwhelming."—Paco Underhill, author of Why We Buy



"An excellent book."—Jane Jacobs



"A practical handbook for all who care enough to fight for a more liveable environment."—Washington Post
