Endorsements

"This is surely the definitive history of the postwar crisis of the American city. Jon Teaford reaffirms his standing as our best historian of American urban governance with this profound and deeply researched examination of the long struggle of politicians, planners, and citizens against the forces of decentralization and decay."
