9780060910136: The limits of the city (Harper colophon books/CN)

"City air makes people free." With this medieval adage, Murray Bookchin begins a remarkable essay on the evolution and the dialectics of urbanism. In an age when city air makes people cought, and, indeed, city life makes many of them psychoticc, there is a certain grim irony to the saying. But with a wealth of learning and a depth of passion, Bookchin convincingly argues that there was once a human and progressive tradition of urban life, and that this heritage has reached its "ultimate negation in the modern metropolis."

Review:

The Limits of the City is something of a rarity: a book on real social problems informed by a political philosophy...The value of this book is that it is neither a "relevant" tract nor a "reactionary condemnation." It is a serious piece of social philosophy that does not fear to be practical. - Terry M. Perlin, Science and Society
