It’s likely you’ve noticed that the fastest growing “cities” in America aren’t really cities at all – they are actually yesterday’s overgrown suburbs. In Boomburbs: The Rise of America’s Accidental Cities, authors Robert E. Lang and Jennifer B. LeFurgy explain who lives in boomburbs, what they look like, how they are governed, and why their rise calls into question the definition of “urban.” They offer a fascinating examination of the changing face of America ’s metropolitan landscape.
