For a decade, Suburban Nation has given voice to a growing movement in North America to put an end to suburban sprawl and replace the last century's automobile-based settlement patterns with a return to more traditional planning. Founders of the Congress for the New Urbanism, Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk are at the forefront of the movement, and even their critics, such as Fred Barnes in The Weekly Standard , recognized that " Suburban Nation is likely to become this movement's bible." A lively lament about the failures of postwar planning, this is also that rare book that offers solutions: "an essential handbook" ( San Francisco Chronicle ).

This tenth anniversary edition includes a new preface by the authors.

Great book of knowledge of neighbourhoods and how sprawl is counter to the way humans like to live. Written by people who actually design award winning and successful neighbourhoods!
