  • "Web Feet summary: This lengthy article from Atlantic Monthly describes the personal and public consequences of urban sprawl. Zoning laws, aesthetic concerns, and automobile dependence are all discussed, and possible solutions are given. The historical perspective is useful for students, and government classes will find much of interest here."
  • "In Home from Nowhere Kunstler explores the growing movement across America to restore the physical dwelling place of our civilization. Picking up where The Geography of Nowhere left off, Kunstler describes precisely how the American Dream of a little cottage in a natural landscape mutated into today's sprawling automobile suburb in all its ghastliness, and why "we are going to run shrieking from it to a better world." He locates in our national psychology the origin of Americans' traditional dislike for city life, and what this implies about our ability to get along with one another."
