"Jane Jacobs's 1961 classic, "The Death and Life of Great American Cities," was a prescient and enormously influential jeremiad against the deadening fallout of modernist urban planning. But it was also an evocative ode to the messy cacophony of city life, a paean to the resilience and imagination of city dwellers.Indeed her new book, "Dark Age Ahead," is both wildly ambitious in scope and gloomily portentous about the direction of North American culture."
