From the Publisher:

"The accomplished urban designer Jonathan Barnett devotes his latest book to exploring ways of ameliorating the split between the `old city,' which used to be the center of things, and the `new city' on the metropolitan periphery. Barnett discusses an impressively broad variety of recent plans and designs for controlling sprawl, improving urban centers and edge cities, and fitting new buildings in with old. One of the best available overviews of how urban and metropolitan design issues are currently being dealt with." -Progressive Architecture

"`Because Jonathan Barnett is a gifted practitioner, an experienced and knowing urban designer, as well as distinguished teacher and author his books on urban design and history, theory and practice are extraordinarily useful for both lay persons and professional readers." --Journal of the American Planning Association

Targeted at architects, students, urban designers and planners, landscape architects, and city and regional officials, The Fractured Metropolis provides a thorough analysis of not only cities but also the entire metropolitan region, considering how both are intrinsically linked and influence one other.

Jonathan Barnett, an urban designer and architect who has worked for cities throughout the United States, teaches architecture and urban design at City College.
