The Endless City reviews


Business Week, March 2008

"The book's encyclopedic scope and the way it connects urban problems to economic and social issues make it a useful resource for urban planners and architects, as well as a broader range of designers and business people hoping to orient their products and services to consumers living in the world's fast-growing cities."

Conde Nast Traveler, April 2008

"Photographs, diagrams and statistics add up to a captivating, if alarming, portrayal of metropolitan life in the twenty-first century."

Dazed & Confused, April 2008

"A scholarly study of urban developments...while The Endless City is packed with statistics and terms...the facts are broken up and made palatable by stunning images that demonstrate what the statistics and jargon actually mean...This book will help you understand what 'social diversity' really is."

Washington Post Writer's Group, April 7, 2008

"A 500-page tour de force."

Publishers Weekly, starred review, May 2008

"This sprawling introduction to the challenges of contemporary urban planning should fascinate students and technically-minded city dwellers."

Dwell, June 2008

"The sheer scope of this book, with nearly 35 contributors, is magnificent** -- covering topics from global capitals and employment dynamics to "vertical ghettos" and satellite photos of "urban grain."
