Book: Perverse Cities by Pamela Blais
This book outlines the bureaucracy and failure of cities to quell rapid expansion of suburban development. It describes how sprawl has contributed to first world pollution and emissions, as well as the financing and losses cities face when they continue subsiding sprawl, and the sociological impacts of suburbs. This book is important because it allows its readers to gain a broad perspective of how cities work and how it impacts its citizens.
