The Life And Death Of England's Cities Revisited

One of the better recent long posts I’ve written (if I do say so myself…) was August’s “The Life And Death Of England’s Cities“, which used a pair of brilliant essays by British physician/journalist Theodore Dalrymple on the perils of modern architecture as its launching point.

At the time, it was included in one of Willism’s periodic “Carnival of the Classiness” Blogosphere round-ups. And it’s gotten a new lease on life, via links from one of Dalrymple’s chief American publishers, City Journal, which link to it on their home page, and also from The Brothers Judd, who recently included it on their fine blog.
