This book places sprawl in a historical context while presenting a unified review of the recent literature on polycentric urban areas. Bogart provides an economist's perspective on urban sprawl that is accessible to students and researchers in other disciplines. - Daniel McMillen, University of Illinois at Chicago
This wonderful book does the seemingly impossible: it brings refreshingly original insights to our understanding of modern cities within an intellectually coherent but empirically relevant unifying framework, and it thoroughly engages the reader throughout. By re-conceptualizing what cities are - a complex web of 'trading places' in which households and firms seek to accomplish a variety of goals simultaneously - it goes beyond simplistic models that miss the rich set of interactions which cities support and foster, I enthusiastically recommend this book to academics in search of new ideas, to policy makers in search of ways to improve life in modern cities, and to anyone with an interest in understanding where our cities have come from and where they are going. - Thomas J. Nechyba, Duke University
"A leading writer in what has become known as the anti-anti-sprawl literature, Bogart provides strong evidence that what we see as edge-city chaos has in fact a strong logic, and that failure to appreciate the economic, social and demographic cases of sprawl will frustrate any attempt to control or direct it." - Literary Review of Canada
