Abstract

In The Triumph of Cities, Ed Glaeser takes us around the world and into the mind of the modern city – from Mumbai to Paris to Rio to Detroit to Shanghai, and to any number of points in between – to reveal how cities think, why they behave in the manners that they do, and what wisdom they share with the people who inhabit them. Reviewed by Olmo Silva. The Triumph of the City. Edward Glaeser. Palgrave Macmillan. March 2011.
