Editorial Reviews

Review

"The "Complete Streets" approach seems to be a feasible way to improve access, health, and economic activity. But are we really challenging inequality and inequity by designing and building "Complete Streets"? This edited volume is thought provoking, and a good way to start the conversation about this urgent question."Lois M. Takahashi, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

"Incomplete Streets asks important questions about how equitable Complete Streets really are. While seemingly benign, authors in this well-edited collection, argue that this vision of street design ignores key street users from sidewalk venders to low-wage auto commuters. This is a timely critique that deserves attention."–Ann Forsyth, Harvard University, USA

"Over the last 30 years our urban spaces have become increasingly neo-liberalised commodities and privatised public places. This timely collection reveals the contested space tensions and the successes that can be achieved in local streets. The Complete Streets movement will challenge attitudes of highways and engineering professionals, and those of urban planners too. We should refocus our attention to ‘people and places’ rather than ‘land users’ to become truly equitable and sustainable; afterall it is people that make places." –Mark Tewdwr-Jones, Newcastle University, UK

"This important book takes a hard look at the emerging movement for livability and asks the essential question: For whom? The authors' unflinching, good humoured perspectives are essential reading for anyone who cares about the shape of our cities." –Elly Blue, Bikenomics Industrial Complex.

"This volume offers an important critique of how potentially progressive ideas such as Complete Streets can be misunderstood or co-opted to maintain and exacerbate an unequal urban status quo." – Rike Sitas, African Centre for Cities
