Cities in renaissance, deftly chronicled!,
This review is from: The End of the Suburbs: Where the American Dream Is Moving (Hardcover)
Gallagher writes persuasively about a major change in American society, one that will affect all Americans: where we live. Little remarked, a shift in social and economic activity has begun, away from subways and towards cities. Gallagher chronicles this movement, marshalling convincing data but also poignant anecdotes gathered through extensive reporting. She has traveled widely and writes fluidly. She is plainly very accomplished as a senior journalist at one of the more important business magazines, but also writes with refreshing energy. A nifty volume, nice pictures too!
