Three distinguished scholars challenge us to put the urban crisis back on the agenda, both as a moral challenge to our conscience and an economic challenge to prosperity. Focusing on the growing concentration of poverty in cities and older suburbs and the mounting costs of suburban sprawl, they argue that these problems have political origins and can thus be resolved through political means.
