Robert Bruegmann, “Sprawl: A Compact History”, Minnesota Public Radio, 2007/02

Sprawl generally has a negative connotation, but Robert Bruegmann has studied patterns of urban, suburban and exurban growth in history.

“Virtually overnight,” Dr. Bruegmann writes, “the anti-sprawl reformers’ new catchphrase ‘smart growth’ seemed to be everywhere. It appeared as though every right-minded individual and organization in the country was convinced that sprawl was economically inefficient, environmentally detrimental, socially deplorable, and aesthetically ugly – in short, an unmitigated disaster. In fact, so many ‘right-minded’ people were so vociferous on the subject that I began to suspect that there must be something suspicious about the argument itself.”
