There are so many books that have come out on sprawl in the past two years, it is incredible! And add to that the news almost everyday, somebody is in the news talking about sprawl. Duany, Plater-Zyberk and Speck have written an inspiring book, "Suburban Nation" (1999). I say inspiring because it touches home even to those that are not die-hard new urbanists. Tom Daniels has written a great book which for the first time focuses on the exurban fringe and growth management challenges there: "When City and Country Collide" (1999). And there is "Once There Were Greenfields" by Benfield, Raimi and Chen (1999). Haven't gotten to that one yet. The list goes on and on! One of my own interests is in seeing how we can quantify sprawl, diagnose it, and put programs in place to mitigate it. Jerry Weitz.
