Editorial Reviews


"Valuable for those in urban studies, city planners, and civil leaders . . . Recommended."—Choice

“Polluted and Dangerous is a welcome and timely contribution to the literature in urban affairs and environmental studies. His work ably demonstrates both the potential and utility of interdisciplinary work in the social sciences. Few scholars have studied the long-term impacts of brown fields on people and place. Polluted and Dangerous is an important first cut at filling this gap in the literature. This is not only a book for libraries — it should be read by planners and advocates alike who care about the future of abandoned property.”—Environment and Planning


“Once icons of our industrial prowess, a select group of brownfield properties are now referred to as Toads because of their ugliness and the blight they impose on surrounding neighborhoods. While the brownfields community has focused on more up-beat stories about marketable sites in more popular locations, Hollander employs rich case studies to address the worst brownfields and understand the problems they inflict, as well as the strategies employed to redevelop them - warts and all.” (Christopher De Sousa, Associate Professor, University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee and Co-Director and Founding Member, Brownfields Research Consortium, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee)
