About the Author

Alan Ehrenhalt was the executive editor of "Governing" magazine from 1990 to 2009. He is the author of three books: "The United States of Ambition, " "The Lost City, " and "Democracy in the Mirror. "In 2000, he was the winner of the American Political Science Association s Carey McWilliams Award for distinguished contributions to the field of political science by a journalist. He is currently executive editor of Stateline, a daily news service reporting on politics and policy in all fifty states. Ehrenhalt lives near Washington, D.C."


Ehrenhalt takes his reader on a tour of the changing American cityscape . . . An enjoyable and engaging read, especially for those considering a move back to the city . . . Solidly researched with great questions asked and plenty of hard facts and anecdotal answers provided. Richard Horan, "Christian Science Monitor" "The Great Inversion" and the United Nations agree; the world is becoming more urban by the day . . . To Ehrenhalt s credit, he does not pass moral judgment on the process. With clear prose that is both informative and entertaining, he objectively states the facts (and presents a great number of voices from immigrant businessmen and local civil servants to politicians from Elite African-American families and developers), leaving his readers free to render their own verdict. Joshua Bloodworth, Dominion of New York Most writers on cities are either cheerleaders or naysayers. Ehrenhalt is neither, and he has written a balanced, hard-hitting book that is a persuasive forecast of our complex urban future. Witold Rybczynski, author of "Makeshift Metropolis" The future of the city is the future of America and the world. Alan Ehrenhalt shows us how a desire for urbanism is bringing people back to America s downtowns, and what suburbs and communities of all sorts must do to thrive in the future. "The Great Inversion" is a must read for anyone concerned with American cities, urbanism, and the future of the way we live. Richard Florida, author of "Who s Your City?" "["The Great Inversion"] is a serious, provocative, and gracefully written, and consistently interesting look at how the urban-suburban balance is shifting" "Better! Cities & Towns""
