"In her new book, Dark Age Ahead, Jacobs visits her old thematic haunts -- the way cities work, the way economies work, the shakiness of too much 'accepted' wisdom -- to bring back an ominous new message: Lazy thinking and a lack of accountability could combine to unhinge many of the advances that fuel our modern life... Where the book's premise seems more heartfelt than convincing is the notion that all this translates to the warning signs of a Dark Age during which modern civilization -- the whole shebang -- could somehow unwind and regress."
