Jane Jacobs is one of my heroes. Heroines. Role models.
I think all three work well. Jacobs is great. I've been re-reading her books because someone told me they thought academics had forgotten about her. Also, I'm thinking about designing an urban history course. Absolutely- she is recommended reading.
There were a couple of urban history courses at UNM that I wanted to take, but ran out of time/money/proximity. I'm pretty sure Death/Life is one of their texts.
Yeah, I think it's still pretty widely-read. When they said it wasn't read in universities, I sort of thought, no that can't be right.

Shouting about art and culture from an ivory soapbox in a lonely corner of Mall University. Come on in- the ennui is fine!
