Ecologist Eric Sanderson explains the interconnections between oil and money, cars and transportation, and suburbs and land use. He then charts a path toward renewed economic growth, enhanced national security, revitalized communities, and a sustainable environment. Illustrated throughout with maps, charts, and infographics, this book suggests how we achieve a better world through a self-reinforcing cycle of tax reform, retrofitted towns and cities, bicycles and streetcars, and investment in renewable energy.

A nicely described history of suburbanisation. Graphs and charts are not always easy to understand, confusion between power and energy units (as usual these days) does not help. Some economics of renewables already (end 2016) looking very dated. Don't let any of these minor criticisms stop you reading this.
