What People are Saying About This

Zane L. Miller

The Exploding Metropolis ranks as one of the first most influential manifestos for choice, diversity, integration, anti-expertiseism, and citizens' participation in urban design. It provides a window into the undertow of post-modernist historicism in the 1950s and introduces problems that persist in current debates about the form and structure of urban life.
