Sounding Spokane:: Perspectives on the Built Environment of a Regional CityISBN: 0910055858;
Book DescriptionWhat does being an urban center for a large geographical region do to the communal idenitity of such a city as Spokane? How does the relative youth of the city relate to the sense of place in geography, and in time? These are some of the issues addressed in David Wang's marvelous anthology, the first book of its kind to view the western mid-size regional city as a complex and unique phenomenon. Its in-depth discussions of neighborhood, geography, architectural themes and gambits, parks, urban renewal and preservation, and other aspects of a city's composition, enact a portrait with implications far beyond Spokane itself. Anyone interested in the fate of regional cities in the West will want to read this book.
