The Second City Book collects revised and updated articles from the groundbreaking City Magazine reflecting the major urban issues affecting Canada in the 1970s.

A sequel to The City Book, this volume offers 22 case studies of Canadian city politics and city planning, examining the growth of suburbs, the contemporary rise in housing costs, the consequences of unchecked demolitions, and the real functioning of urban bureaucracies. Authors include John Sewell, George Baird, Desmond Morton and Kent Gerecke.

The Second City Book is a vivid, eye-opening report from one of the busiest and most controversial periods in Canada's development history.
