"A broad and important study that adds to a growing literature
that stresses the need to continue to think and write about the
environmental histories of cities."
--Western Historical Quarterly
"Meticulously documents the causes of the growth disparity
between Tucson and Phoenix. More than a scholarly text, 'Desert
Cities' is relevant, provocative and highly recommended."
"Seamlessly integrates environmental, urban, and western
history in a provocative story about the rivalry between Arizona's
cities. Will appeal to both scholars and a general audience."
