Triumph of the City: How Our Greatest Invention Makes Us Richer, Smarter, Greener, Healthier, and Happier

PAST EVENT Thursday February 3 2011

Introduction: Nathan Glazer, Professor of Sociology and Education, Emeritus, Harvard University

Politicians of all stripes love to badmouth cities. But cities are actually the healthiest, greenest, and richest (in cultural and economic terms) places to live. New Yorkers, for instance, live longer than other Americans; heart disease and cancer rates are lower in Gotham than in the nation as a whole. More than half of America's income is earned in twenty-two metropolitan areas. And city dwellers use, on average, 40 percent less energy than suburbanites.

In his new book, Triumph of the City: How Our Greatest Invention Makes Us Richer, Smarter, Greener, Healthier, and Happier, Manhattan Institute senior fellow and City Journal contributing editor Edward Glaeser reveals the hidden workings of cities and how they bring out the best in humankind.
