The Fiasco Of Suburbia

Author James Howard Kunstler takes an incisive look at the dilemma of open space conservation as a means of salvaging community.

"As a public commentator on suburban sprawl issues I've been engaged in a low-grade war of ideas with the environmental community. The fiasco of suburbia, so acute and so damaging to our culture in general, has otherwise intelligent and educated people adopting foolish positions on our national land-use crisis. The most common is the idea that nature is the antidote for problems of bad urbanism."
