"Albuquerque is an acquired taste. And it's only the context of its natural and human landscape that makes it worth the effort..In the early 1960s, Albuquerque's leaders were unconcerned that its unique character was being threatened by uncontrolled growth. By the early 1970s, however, environmentalists, historic preservationists, and other interested in quality-of-life issues had risen to public prominence. Albuquerque found itself embroiled in what would prove to be a more-than-twenty-year struggle to conserve its New Mexican identity while continuing to benefit from the prosperity of its growth." -from the Preface.
