Hot vs. Moral Cities

In Sunday's Orange County Register, Steven Greenhut comments on Joel Kotkin's new book, The City: A Global History: The whole article is here. Haven't read the book yet, but the idea of tracing the history of urbanization to gain insights on modern times would seem to me to be a valuable contribution to the planning literature. It would be good for planning students to be exposed to reading like this, as it places their work in a larger context that may not be obvious to them from their vantage point.
