With more than 80 percent of Americans now living in cities and suburbs, getting our communities right has never been more important, more complicated or more fascinating. The new book People Habitat dives into the ecology of human settlement — from why people don’t walk much anymore to the relationship between cities and religion — and how to make it better for both people and the planet.
