The Death and Life of Great American Cities by Jane Jacobs is a standard reference work for architects and urban designers. In her 1961 book, Jacobs challenged the urban renewal of the time. By simply studying life in the city and in public spaces, she saw the essence of the city and how urban renewal was destroying it. The murderer was ‘master builder’ Robert Moses. Citizen Jane: Battle for the City tells the story of Jane Jacobs and does not shirk from holding up her story as a mirror to the urban design of today. A must-see for everybody who loves the city.
