The Death and Life of Great American Cities by Jane Jacobs

"Streets in cities serve many purposes besides carrying vehicles, and city sidewalks-the pedestrian parts of the streets-serve many purposes besides carrying pedestrians..."

Review
"The most refreshing, provacative, stimulating and exciting study of this [great problem] which I have seen. It fairly crackles with bright honesty and common sense."
--Harrison Salisbury, "The New York Times"
"One of the most remarkable books ever written about the city... a "primary" work. The research apparatus is not pretentious--it is the eye and the heart--but it has given us a magnificent study of what gives life and spirit to the city."
--William H. Whyte, author of "The Organization Man"
