Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This thoughtful study examines why certain urban areas grow and continue to be healthy while others decline in population and job opportunities. Using the cities of Milwaukee, Cleveland, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Austin as examples, Orum (sociology, Univ. of Illinois at Chicago) explores the political and economic factors that can lead to a city's decline as well as to its rebirth and health. These factors range from the continued ability to annex land to the importance of enlightened and aggressive political leadership. Most telling is the comparative analysis of Milwaukee and Austin, the former a declining industrial city, the latter a city experiencing tremendous growth. Orum provides important lessons for politicians, planners, and business leaders. Highly recommended.?H. Ward Jandl, National Park Svc., Washington, D.C.
