"Streets and the Shaping of Towns and Cities traces the history of street design and layout, critiques the situation we are in today, and suggests alternatives that are less rigidly controlled, more flexible, and responsive to local conditions. Originally published in 1997, this edition includes a revised and updated introduction that addresses topics of current interest, as well as several new illustrations and a new appendix on narrow streets."--BOOK JACKET.
