Ziegler on Cities, Sprawl and the Threat of Terrorism

Edward H. Ziegler (University of Denver) has posted American Cities, Suburban Sprawl, and the Threat of Terrorism on SSRN.  Here's the abstract:

This article explores Aristotle's statement about politics shaping the design and form of the built environment in the context of urban planning, suburban sprawl, and the threat of terrorism in the United States. The article suggests that sprawl may be accelerated by the threat of terrorism in the United States and discusses sustainable development issues in the context of the terrorist threat to America's urban places. The article explores how zoning and urban planning policies can make a difference in shaping the form and regional sustainability of our built environment and reduce our reliance on automobiles and foreign oil.
