The impressive economic and infrastructural development that has taken place in Spain over the past two decades has shaped an optimum breeding ground for unprecedented architectural revolution, especially following the focal point which was the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games and the Universal Exhibition in Seville. The abundance of new projects - as many public buildings as urban landscape, as well as residential and commercial projects - has converted Spain into one of the most sought after places for both Spanish and foreign architects in the field of experimentation.

Thirty years after its publication, The Death and Life of Great American Cities was described by The New York Times as "perhaps the most influential single work in the history of town planning....[It] can also be seen in a much larger context. It is first of all a work of literature; the descriptions of street life as a kind of ballet and the bitingly satiric account of traditional planning theory can still be read for pleasure even by those who long ago absorbed and appropriated the book's arguments." Jane Jacobs, an editor and writer on architecture in New York City in the early sixties, argued that urban diversity and vitality were being destroyed by powerful architects and city planners. Rigorous, sane, and delightfully epigrammatic, Jacobs's small masterpiece is a blueprint for the humanistic management of cities. It is sensible, knowledgeable, readable, indispensable. The author has written a new foreword for this Modern Library edition.
