"A useful source of theories on sustainable urban development in the developed world."
"It represents the most consistent attempt that I have encountered in a long time to rigorously analyse and codify the city--to make it understandable, for instance, in the way that Modernist city planning had rendered it."
-"The Architect's Journal
..."presents the latest thinking on the benefits and dangers of higher density urban living."
..."this collection is a valuable antidote to the trend to offer simplistic solutions to complex problems."
-"The Architectural Review
..."scholarly and well edited...It will also be used as a whole or in parts as required reading for tertiary coursework in schools of planning, architecture, and urban design ..."The Compact City is a significant contribution to achieving sustainable urban forms. It is also an excellent introduction to the complexities faced by the planning profession in a world seeking sustainable solutions to human settlements, and the role which can be played by urban design."
-"Urban Design International
