Write The First Customer Review

The author of the classic "The Death and Life of Great American Cities" presents a unique concept that will revolutionize the way we think about the economy. Starting from the premise that human beings "exist wholly within nature as part of natural order in every respect", Jacobs focuses her singular eye on the natural world in order to discover the fundamental models for a vibrant economy. The lessons she discloses come from fields as diverse as ecology, evolution, and cell biology.
