Reviews

Newitz always sees to the heart of complex systems and breaks them down with poetic ferocity.--N. K. Jemisin, author of the Broken Earth trilogy and The City We Became
Cheerful, curious, amused, and amusing, Annalee Newitz is a fabulous tour guide through the latest archaeological perspectives on four of humankind's most remarkable urban experiments. Along the way, Newitz dispels myths, evokes fascinating stories--and makes us think hard about our own urban future.--Charles Mann, author of 1491 and 1493
