The Sprawl Net Resource List
The resource list is under
The resource list is a detailed bibliography of what we consider to
be the essential literature for studying sprawl.
It is our ``great books'' program, though it will also feature
important articles, speeches, TV shows, movies, videotapes,
exhibitions, CD-ROMs, and video and computer games.
Like its subject, the
list is likely to be a little sparse at first, and perhaps even a
bit frustrating for early users; but once the infrastructure is in,
we will work hard to populate it quickly. We are planning for
growth and heavy traffic.
The list has a number of nifty
features intended to encourage careful thought,
discussion, and debate among its frequenters, and to
broaden the audience for many of the works included in it:
- Introductions. Each entry will have a brief introduction,
explaining what makes the work notable, why it might be useful in studying
sprawl, and helping to put it in context.
- Blurbs and more. We'll include information from the
publisher, from book jackets and press materials.
- Quotes of note. Where possible, each entry will
include a few brief-but-notable excerpts from the work.
- Quick pics. Where possible, each
reference will include visual images from the work.
- Multiple critical reviews. Entries will be
linked to reviews of the work; we'll also include references to reviews
of the work available elsewhere.
- Summaries. Some entries will include summaries of notable
- Room for lots of comments. Interesting
comments submitted by readers will be attached
to the appropriate entry for others to read.
