Once There Were Greenfields: How Urban Sprawl is Undermining Americas Environment, Economy, and Social Fabric by F. Kaid Benfield, Matthew Raimi, Donald D. T. Chen

Is pursuit of the American dream becoming a nightmare? Once There Were Greenfields presents the story of one of Americas most challenging social problems, sprawl development. Community downtowns are being replaced with strip malls. Farmland is giving way to parking lots. Meanwhile, inner cities are losing jobs and the tax base necessary to support public schools. This book meticulously documents the consequences of sprawling growth patterns and proposes guiding principles for a new kind of smart growth that combines economic progress with environmental protection and social goals. Book jacket.
