內容簡介


《偉大城市的誕生與衰亡》作者珍‧雅各布斯首本自傳書
一探美國最具影響力的都市計畫運動家的傳奇人生


珍‧雅各布斯以一個平凡女性、擁有三個孩子的母親角色,發表了7本影響後世的重要著作,她抵抗政府的都市計畫發展拯救了鄰居的家鄉、反抗完成曼哈頓高速公路計畫因而被逮捕兩次,並集結市民組織草根力量保護現有的街道免於清拆與重建,這些抗爭的過程,珍‧雅各布斯都以一己之力獲得人民的支持及勝利。本書將真實重現珍‧雅各布斯精彩的人生旅程,小學三年級就勇敢挑戰導師;高中時期成為校園詩人;職業生涯更在《Iron Age雜誌》、《建築論壇雜誌》及《財富雜誌》累積她的寫作功力,因而完成影響後世深遠的作品《偉大城市的誕生與衰亡》。1950年更參與位於格林尼治村自家社區旁的公園拆除保衛戰,與權威人士Robert Moses展開將近20年的對峙。

The first major biography of the irrepressible woman who changed the way we view and live in cities, and whose influence can still be felt in any discussion of urban planning to this day.

Eyes on the Street is a revelation of the phenomenal woman who raised three children, wrote seven groundbreaking books, saved neighborhoods, stopped expressways, was arrested twice, and engaged at home and on the streets in thousands of debates--all of which she won. Here is the child who challenged her third-grade teacher; the high school poet; the journalist who honed her writing skills at Iron Age, Architectural Forum, Fortune, and other outlets, while amassing the knowledge she would draw upon to write her most famous book, The Death and Life of Great American Cities. Here, too, is the activist who helped lead an ultimately successful protest against Robert Moses's proposed expressway through her beloved Greenwich Village; and who, in order to keep her sons out of the Vietnam War, moved to Canada, where she became as well known and admired as she was in the United States.
