"This Land" Book on American Development


Recommended Posts

I just picked up the book "This Land" by Anthony Flint. For those interested in American development its a great read (atleast so far...I haven't finished it). It discusses why, despite a renewed emphasis in the urban core, American cities continue to sprawl. It goes into the history of development in the US as well as the politics and economics behind it.

Probably no surprise but Portland is mentioned frequently in the book, as are key planning people associated with the City.

If you are interested in this topic, which I would guess most members of UP are, I recommend the book.
