reading for 8.26

two chapters from revolt and crisis in greece
full pdf is here
revolt and crisis in greece.pdf

chapters to read are 2 (urban planning and revolt); and 3 (the polis-jungle)

1. the main question here is–how does this translate to the u.s., specifically to the areas we know and live in?
the cities we are in are certainly structured differently, and of course our cultural expectations and assumptions are also different.
2. is it possible for us to recreate our environs (in the ways that specifically chapter 3 talks about)? what would that take? where would it be most likely to last/succeed? or is this something that we should even be trying for?
3. critical mass makes a brief and surprising appearance in their analysis… what about *that*?!
