Barnes writes, "American cities have changed dramatically since 1961. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the publication of 'Death and Life,' it's surely time now to celebrate her accomplishments and also to think freshly about her ideas, about what we assume is actually going on in cities, and about what we believe is correct and desirable about cities."
