Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Nine essays that grew out of a 1990-91 lecture series at Cleveland State University draw on contemporary social criticism to critique and expand conventional approaches to the study and use of space in urban design. The topics include strategy and history, fantastic appearances, black politics, the new walled cities, regulation and flexible specializations, and city sights and sites. Annotation c.
