Argues that the debate about transportation and land-use planning in the US has been distorted by the myth that urban sprawl is the result of a free market. This book challenges a policy environment in which scientific uncertainty is used to reinforce the status quo of sprawl, and its negative consequences for people and their communities.
'Far-reaching and paradigmshaking... Levine forcefully argues that the current framework in which both suburban sprawl and possible reform strategies are debated is badly skewed.' Urban Affairs Review 'Jonathan Levine forcefully demonstrates as groundless the belief that compact development must prove its transportation and other benefits before it is permitted as legitimate.' Anthony Downs, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution 'Few books can show us something new in the well-explored territory of transportation, land use, and smart growth. Zoned Out ... does just that.'
