Description: Touching upon issues of race, class, and the environment, 12 essays by academics from sociology, urban studies, political science, economics, and law examine the problems of urban sprawl in the contemporary United States. Presented by Squires (sociology, George Washington U.) the essays range from the theoretical discussions of uneven development and concentration of poverty to case studies of Portland's Urban Growth Boundary and Atlanta's explosive suburban expansion. Policy recommendations related to revenue sharing and incentives to combat sprawl and its consequent evils. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
