From the Back Cover:

London, Paris, New York, Tokyo and Los Angeles are the ultimate 100 mile cities, set apart by an economic supremacy derived from their size, power and ambitions. Deyan Sudjic, a witty, incisive observer of architecture in the widest cultural sense, has written a devastatingly graphic portrait of this phenomenon emerging from the 1980s: standardised, monolithic, corporate urban sprawls that are the outward expression of a new society, a blueprint that will affect the lives of tens of millions of people.

‘Fascinating, Deyan Sudjic looks at the world’s greatest cities as they evolve around us, transforming the old centralised metropolis of cathedral, palace and parliament square into an expanding force-field of airports and hypermarkets, business parks and leisure complexes. 'The 100 Mile City' does for the London, Tokyo and New York of the 1990s what Reyner Banham did for the Los Angeles of the 1960s. Powerful and convincing’
J.G. BALLARD

‘Simply the most provocative, most readable, most thought-provoking book about cities for quite a time… Sudjic is at his best, and his best is very good indeed’
PETER HALL

‘A knowing, witty, unkind and very intelligent book which addresses one of the central issues of our time – the changing nature of the city… Sudjic’s mind is interesting and original and he has authenticity on his side’
FRANCIS DUFFY, 'President of the RIBA'

‘Sudjic’s interests are in the practical worlds of economics, human behaviour and technology, and he is at his most impressive in unravelling them’
NEW STATESMAN SOCIETY
