The last landscape by William Hollingsworth Whyte( Book )

30 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in English and held by 1,707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The remaining corner of an old farm, unclaimed by developers. The brook squeezed between housing plans. Abandoned railroad lines. The stand of woods along an expanded highway. These are the outposts of what was once a larger pattern of forests and farms, the "last landscape." According to William H. Whyte, the place to work out the problems of our metropolitan areas is within those areas, not outside them. The age of unchecked expansion without consequence is over, but where there is waste and neglect there is opportunity. Our cities and suburbs are not jammed; they just look that way. There are in fact plenty of ways to use this existing space to the benefit of the community, and The Last Landscape provides a practical and timeless framework for making informed decisions about its use. Called "the best study available on the problems of open space" by the New York Times when it first appeared in 1968, The Last Landscape introduced many cornerstone ideas for land conservation, urging all of us to make better use of the land that has survived amid suburban sprawl. Whyte's pioneering work on easements led to the passage of major open space statutes in many states, and his argument for using and linking green spaces, however small the areas may be, is a recommendation that has more currency today than ever before

In 1980, William H. Whyte published the findings from his revolutionary Street Life Project in The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces. Both the book and the accompanying film were instantly labeled classics, and launched a mini-revolution in the planning and study of public spaces. They have since become standard texts, and appear on syllabi and reading lists in urban planning, sociology, environmental design, and architecture departments around the world. Project for Public Spaces, which grew out of Holly's Street Life Project and continues his work around the world, has acquired the reprint rights to Social Life, with the intent of making it available to the widest possible audience and ensuring that the Whyte family receive their fair share of Holly's legacy

4 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William H. Whyte rose to prominence in the early 1950s as a writer at Fortune during that magazine's heyday with a series of articles on America's corporate culture. His research eventually culminated in the publication of The Organization Man (1956), a controversial bestseller that established Whyte as a leading voice in the debate over the social changes beginning to affect postwar America." "Over the course of the following three decades, Whyte led the charge to preserve what was best in America's great cities in the face of an increasingly suburbanized culture oriented toward the automobile." "Whyte's fascination with cities led to the creation of the Street Life Project, a ten-year study of the dynamics of how people interact with the urban environment. The crowning achievement of Whyte's career came with the publication of City: Rediscovering the Center (1988). In these pages Whyte distilled the results of his extensive empirical research into a celebration of why people are naturally drawn to the vibrant center of a city and what planners can do to encourage a healthy relationship between citizen and city." "The Essential William H. Whyte offers the core writings of a great observer of the postwar American scene."--Jacket
