This is more along the lines of society/economics, but _I'd_ recommend
Jane Jacobs. Maybe not for a core list, but I'd recommend her in
general. _Death and Life of Great American Cities_ is a deep analysis
of how cities work, as complex systems, and is said to have overturned
the urban planning movement. _Cities and the Wealth of Nations_ has
some interest pragmatic libertarian arguments: large nation-states
stifle their own economies and would do better as trading city-states.
Secession as economic reproduction, in addition to economic growth.
