Edge City and The Nine Nations of North America reflect observations by a journalist about the social and political forces transforming the geography of contemporary North America. Garreau's analysis has intrigued both academic and nonacademic audiences, especially his concepts of regionalization and ideas about the urban-regional transformation of landscapes at local and continental scales.
