A Strategy for Regional Renewal
In his highly acclaimed book, Cities without Suburbs, former Albuquerque mayor David Rusk explained why regions with wealthy suburbs surrounding a poor central city face continuing economic hardship. Now, in Baltimore Unbound, he applies his ideas in an illuminating study of Baltimore's continuing economic stagnation, offering a frank assessment of its causes and possible solutions.
Placing the study in the context of national urban issues, Rusk reviews similar problems and remedial efforts in other cities.
