About the Book

This handbook provides a comprehensive overview of the rebuilding of America’s urban areas. Beginning with an introduction into the condition of our nation’s metropolitan cities and their urban problems, as they exist today, the book also discusses some 14 different practical tools available for public officials to use for inner city renewal. Sixteen case studies have been included to show real-life examples of the efforts of public officials to revitalize their inner city commercial areas and residential neighborhoods. This valuable tool for city planners, business people, and private citizens provides critical thinking about how our urban economic development programs are, and should be, designed and conducted.
