Following in the footsteps of a 1992 publication known as "The Civic Art", the book by Andrés Duany, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, and Robert Alminana titled "The New Civic Art: Elements of Town Planning" copies the original's "encyclopedic format, its international scope, its blending of past and present, and its eclecticism.
