Abstract
This article reviews three recent edited volumes devoted to exploring the legacy of Jane Jacobs. Including a wide variety of voices, the topics covered in the books range from urban planning to economics to philosophy to literature. They examine the full range of Jacobs’s output, as a journalist, an activist and scholar. More than five decades after the publication of The Death and Life of Great American Cities (1961), the volumes speak to Jacobs’s profound and lasting influence on the study of cities.
