REDOING AMERICA: A NATIONWIDE REPORT ON HOW TO MAKE OUR CITIES AND SUBURBS LIVABLE

AS AMERICAN CITIES GROW AND LIFE BECOMES MORE COMFORTABLE AND LUXURIOUS, THE DESTRUCTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT INCREASES. STREAMS ARE POLLUTED, AIR IS VITIATED AND NATURAL RESOURCES ARE SQUANDERED. THIS BOOK DISCUSSES SOME OF THE REASONS FOR THIS PHENOMENON AND SUGGESTS SPECIFIC WAYS IN WHICH A BETTER ORDER CAN BE CREATED. THE PROBLEMS OF INTERGOVERNMENTAL COOPERATION BETWEEN CITIES AND SUBURBS, BETWEEN FEDERAL AND STATE ARE MENTIONED. IDEAS OF MEANS TO IMPROVE TRANSPORTATION AND LOWER THE COSTS ARE PRESENTED. THE NEED OF AN INFORMED AND ENTHUSIASTIC CITIZENRY, WHICH IS A NECESSITY FOR IMPROVEMENT, IS EMPHASIZED.
