Lindsay Bremner's volume of essays on Johannesburg's transformation after the demise of apartheid received the prestigious Jane Jacobs Urban Communication Book Award in 2011. The award - named in honour of the late social activist and author of The death and life of great American cities (1961) - is made annually by the New York based Urban Communication Foundation and aims to recognise outstanding books that exhibit excellence in addressing issues of urban communication. It is not difficult to surmise why Writing the city into being received the award for it contains an impressive collection of reflections both intellectually and visually on the city of Johannesburg.
