Book Talk: James C. O'Connell
Most people think of Boston as a small city where you can walk to everything. In fact, Greater Boston stretches over 1,736 square miles and is the sixth largest metropolitan area in the entire world. Urban planner James O'Connell charts Boston's exemplary development from a post-colonial city surrounded by rural villages to a complex network of central hub, mill towns, streetcar suburbs, parklands, and country retreats, while avoiding the worst effects of both urban sprawl and urban decay.
