Eric Jaffe, reporting for the Atlantic Cities:
Scholars from any number of disciplines — economics and history to ecology and psychology — have explored and documented various aspects of city life through their own unique lenses. What’s needed now, Solecki contends, is a new science of urbanization that looks beyond the surface of cities to the fundamental laws that form their very basis too.
“What we need is a comprehensive, integrated, system-level analysis of the city-building process,” says Solecki.
Sounds about right.
