"Keating's book offers a deeply critical analysis of urban planning and policy making in Atlanta's recent history...[he] has provided an excellent study of post-war urban policy and planning in Atlanta, while at the same time challenging the booster image of a rising global city promoted by a succession of elite decision-makers." -Urban History "This book is not just an historical expose on the city, but it's touted as shedding light on many issues such as corporate control of government, city politics and the Southern way of life. Keating ultimately reveals the imbalance between power and progress." -Atlanta Tribune: The Magazine "Skillfully blends the power analyses of modern Atlanta by Floyd Hunter and Clarence Stone with such classic exposes as those of Lincoln Steffens and Jane Jacobs to create a penetrating portrait of the 'Shame of a Southern City.' Larry Keating's landmark study should be read by historians, social scientists, city planners, decision makers and concerned city dwellers." -Dana F. White, Professor of Urban Studies, Emory University, and author of The Urbanists, 1865-1915 "Larry Keating's study of Atlanta is more than a meticulous and provocative analysis of economic policy in one American city. It is also suggestive for the nation in showing how race and class intertwine to maintain economic injustice even after legal segregation has been abolished." -Howard Zinn, columnist for The Progressive, and author of A People's History of the United States "Keating makes a unique contribution....this is an important addition to the literature on city planning, as well as on Atlanta. Keating builds a strong case that Atlanta has a history of an anti-planning mindset, and the origins of that mindset are readily explained. He has ample material to make his case." -Professor Clarence N. Stone, Department of Government and Politics, University of Maryland, and author of Regime Politics
