Five books (and a bonus!) for presidential candidates reading up on American urbanism

Reading up on American urbanism may not be on candidates’ to-do lists, but if it were… Here are five books I’d recommend, especially given the role that race, policing, and criminal justice have played in public discourse over the past four years.

And a bonus! Given that it’s Jane Jacobs’ centenary, everyone should be rereading The Death and Life of Great American Cities.

Sometime down the road: “What presidential candidates ought to know about ‘global cities.’”
