Festschrift for Jane Jacobs

Sanford (Sandy) Ikeda is writing a short paper for a forthcoming Festschrift for Jane Jacobs. The following is the first paragraph of an extended abstract:
A city is not a man-made thing. Rather, it emerges from the actions of its inhabitants, who interact in unpredictable yet orderly ways. Under the right conditions – the right “rules of the game” – what arises is vital,creative, radically unpredictable, and profitable: the living city.

Source. Sandy wrote a nice remembrence for Jacobs in 2006 you can find here. I'll add info when we find out more about the forthcoming book.
