The clustering of the "creative class" -- professionals in the arts, in the media, in tech -- has brought growth and innovation to cities, but Author: Paul Solman. In the 20th century, our greatest cities were almost ruined by the automobile.

Only a global revolution in transportation can bring them back from the brink. The automobile has encouraged obesity and social isolation, destroyed public space, encouraged fossil-fuel driven foreign wars, and undone the fabric of once great cities.

Saving Our Cities shows how the United States has been in the habit of abusing cities and poor suburbs, then blaming them for society's ills. The book takes issue with federal and state budgets and regulations that line up with the interests of giant corporations and privileged citizens to impose austerity, shortchange public schools, make it.

Taras Grescoe rides the rails all over the world and makes an elegant and impassioned case for the imminent end of car culture and the coming transportation revolution"I am proud to call myself a straphanger," writes Taras Grescoe. The perception of public transportation in America is often unflattering—a squalid last resort for those with one too /5(14).
