Lessons from the World's Least Sustainable City

Andrew Ross

  • Points the way to an urgently needed model that is built on the worst case instead of the best - if sustainability can be acheived in Phoenix, there is hope for every other sprawling city.
  • Provides a lively and entertaining account of Metropolitan Phoenix's struggle to support a city in the desert.
  • Engagingly written by one of the nation's leading practitioners of cultural analysis.
