Editorial Reviews


“The major contributions of Legacy Citiesare that it illustrates change is in the wind, which is being powered by organized citizen action at the neighborhood level, that despite the inability of city governments to take extensive transformative efforts, the citizens are marshalling resources forces for positive change, and that, as with Ezekiel, there is still life in these old bones.”
John Mullin, University of Massachusetts Amherst

Legacy Cities fills a much needed gap in the literature on early twentieth century American cities, like Pittsburgh and Cleveland, as well as others in the Rust Belt. The contributors provide good discussions of several important considerations cities must confront including the role of citizen engagement in the planning process; the condition and quality of rental property at the lower end of the rent spectrum; dealing with the unfinished business of racial reconciliation; and, a very important chapter on local policing in a contemporary context.”
Robert Silverman, University at Buffalo

“Rarely do we find a book centered on the struggles and opportunities of cities like Cleveland, written by not just one or two urban policy experts, but an entire department of them. . . . The book sets the groundwork for residents, public officials, and business leaders to use policy levers to promote success and sustainability in the region.”
