M. Nolan Gray: Arbitrary Lines (2022, Island Press) 4 stars

What if scrapping one flawed policy could bring US cities closer to addressing debilitating housing …

The content overall was good, especially for people who aren't as familiar with what zoning is and isn't, and what it does and doesn't do. The structure of the book starts out well, but in the later sections of the book, repetitiveness in themes and language start to creep in. It's also a bit unclear who the audience for the book is: Is it trying to convince people who are already open to zoning being problematic to follow Gray's full zoning abolitionist project? Is it the abolitionist rhetoric employed to get proponents of zoning to give in a little and at least achieve reform?
