and Decline of America's Man-made Landscape ] ᜡ Ebook Author James Howard Kunstler ᣑ In this inconsistent but provocative analysis, Kunstler Blood Solstice , a novelist and journalist, mixes memoir, historical essay and reporting to condemn the car dependent suburbanization of America Kunstler, who writes ably, casts a very wide net he finds the roots of American individualism in pre colonial property ownership, decries the abstracting influence of modernism on city architecture and slams road builder Robert Moses to support his contention that suburbia is a social environment without soul He offers an intriguing history of the decline of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., his hometown, describes trips to failing Detroit and well planned Portland, Ore., and dissects capitals of unreality like Disney World and Atlantic City His worthy but sketchily described solutions a sustainable economy, better neighborhood development and preservation of the countryside could, however, each merit a book Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.In this spirited, irreverent critique, Kunstler spares none of the culprits that have conspired in the name of the American Dream to turn the U.S landscape from a haven of the civic ideal into a nightmare of crass commercial production and consumption Kunstler strips the bark off the utopian social engineering promoted by the machine worshiping Modern movement of Gropius, Le Corbusier, and Frank Lloyd Wright and skewers the intellectual camps e.g., Venturi that have thrived on making academic glory of the consumer wasteland With the fervor of an investigative reporter and in the vernacular of a tabloid journalist, Kunstler exposes the insidious car lobby and gives case studies of landscapes as diverse as Detroit, Atlantic City, and Seaside, Florida, to illustrate both the woes and hopeful notes The ideas in this book are not new Jane Jacobs and William H Whyte Jr were bemoaning the loss of civic life a quarter century ago , but Kunstler gives their case an urgent, popular voice An eminently relevant and important book highly recommended Thomas P.R Nugent, New YorkCopyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. geography
