Price thinks and cares a lot about Albuquerque. Anyone who shares these qualities should treat him or herself to a copy of this book.
"The author's love of this city comes through here, along with cogent description and analysis. This is the seminal work on New Mexico's largest city."
Illuminating, provocative. . . . a complex, intelligent study of urbanization through an intimate examination of Albuquerque. . . . an insightful, absorbing book.
""Albuquerque" is a fascinating read--so fascinating it will probably be devoured in only one or two marathon reading sessions. When finished, the reader will have much better appreciation of the 'city at the end of the world.'"
Makes a case for thoughtful, controlled development, serving as a quiet manifesto urging caring, vigilant citizen involvement in the growth of the city. It is also a concise and accessible presentation of the diverse, delicately balanced forcescultural, natural, architectural and politicalthat make Albuquerque unique among American cities.
In focusing on Albuquerque, Price has done the city an estimable service. For visitors and residents alike he has sorted out the most exciting positive aspects of Albuquerques historical and present-day identities. His book can be read with interest and profit by city lovers everywhere, but above all his messages deserve an appreciative, heedful response in this particular place.
