Join James Howard Kunstler, author of the classic The Geography of Nowhere and The Long Emergency, as he gives a witty and informative analysis of the current state of civic space in the US and around the world. Kunstler assesses the prospects for "the tragic landscape of highway strips, parking lots, housing tracts, mega-malls, junked cities, and the ravaged countryside that makes up the everyday environment where most Americans live and work."

James Howard Kunstler says he wrote The Geography of Nowhere, "Because I believe a lot of people share my feelings about the tragic landscape of highway strips, parking lots, housing tracts, mega-malls, junked cities, and ravaged countryside that makes up the everyday environment where most Americans live and work." Home From Nowhere was a continuation of that discussion with an emphasis on the remedies. A portion of it appeared as the cover story in the September 1996 Atlantic Monthly.
