The Neighborhood Project

The Neighborhood Project

After decades of studying animals in their habitats, evolutionary biologist David Sloan Wilson had a radical idea-apply evolutionary science to the study of a city. Cities are like organisms, so why not study them as such?

Inspired to become an agent of change in his post-industrial hometown, Wilson descended on its neighborhoods with a scientist’s eye. What does bullying feed on? How can we give kids the best start in life? Is spirituality expanding into new areas, or shrinking? How does neighborhood quality affect test scores? After learning how these traits ‘live’ throughout a city, how can we improve the lives of its citizens?

Populated with original research and the latest science and written in an appealing, personal narrative, THE NEIGHBORHOOD PROJECT is a significant book that strives to define how places define us.
