about this book

"Learned, iconoclastic and exciting. . . . Jacob's diagnosis of the decay of cities in an increasingly integrated world economy is on the mark." —The New York Times Book Review

"Not only comprehensible but entertaining. . . . Like Mrs. Jacobs' other books, it offers a concrete approach to an abstract and elusive subject. That, all by itself, makes for an intoxicating experience." —Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times
