About his Books: All that we share: A Field Guide to the Commons is a collection of essays that offers unique strategies for dealing with the economic, political, and cultural issues that are shaping the global community at the start of the twenty-first century.
The great neighborhood book explains how most struggling communities can be revived, not by vast infusions of cash, not by government, but by the people who live there. Walljasper addresses such challenges as traffic control, crime, comfort and safety, and developing economic vitality. Using a technique called "placemaking"--the process of transforming public space--this exciting guide offers inspiring real-life examples that show the magic that happens when individuals take small steps and motivate others to make change. This book will motivate not only neighborhood activists and concerned citizens but also urban planners, developers, and policymakers Calendar
