Description:

Kristina Ford argues that almost no part of the common perception of 'city planning' is accurate. Drawing on her close knowledge of New Orleans, she puts forward several innovations that might play a crucial role in restoring that devastated city, or any other place in which citizens are troubled by the proposals in the city plan.
