Cities in Stress: A New Look at the Urban Crisis
Cities in Stress represents a significant departure from previous research on urban decline and restructuring. Challenging conventional wisdom from both left and right, and including a chapter on Britain, the contributors to this volume seek to advance our theoretical understanding of the nature, dynamics and significance of the urban crisis. Through detailed case studies of adjustments made in urban policy in response to the the social and fiscal strains of the 1970s, they reconsider the relationship between urban crisis and recovery.
