Summary
  • "In Don't Call it Sprawl, the current policy debate over urban sprawl is put into a broader analytical and historical context. The book informs people about the cause and implications of the changing metropolitan structure rather than trying to persuade them to adopt a panacea to all perceived problems. Bogart explains modern economic ideas about the structure of metropolitan areas to people interested in understanding and influencing the pattern of growth in their cities. Much of the debate about sprawl has been driven by a fundamental lack of understanding of the structure, functioning, and evolution of modern metropolitan areas. The book analyzes ways in which suburbs and cities trade goods and services with each other
  • This approach helps us better understand commuting decisions, housing locations, business locations, and the impact of public policy in such areas as downtown redevelopment and public school reform."--Jacket
