The Death and Life of Great American Cities

by Jane Jacobs.

So I haven't been that successful at this project - either the reading or the blogging. But now that summer's here, I can try to catch up.

Today's book is assigned reading for tomorrow's final exam. It's very entertaining - Jacobs wrote in the 1960s about the need to preserve city life, and it's just as true today. She makes me want to pack up and move to a city - and, if it's possible, she leaves me hating suburbs and developers even more than I already did.
