Grantham and Chorbajian s book, Urban Society: The Shame of Governance, chronicles the big challenges facing today s American cities and offers insights into what we need to fix them. -Corey Dolgon, Director of Community-Based Learning and Professor of Sociology, Stonehill College, author of The End of the Hamptons: Scenes from the Class Struggle in America s Paradise. Grantham and Chorbajian provide a framework for this selection of readings that views urban development and inequality through the prism of power dynamics

Lopsided development, inconsistent criminal justice efforts, gentrification, privatization, and growing inequality are among the core topics examined in this cutting edge collection. Grantham and Chorbajian impressively balance power structure theorizing with incisive case histories to bring into the open the large scale changes in the U.S. that continue to dog inner city residents disproportionately. Their approach and subject matter moves us past the glitz and glitter of downtown redevelopment to tell the stories of abandoned neighborhoods, dispossessed tenants, heightened segregation, and inept social institutions, all shaped in some fashion by complexities of governance and private interests.

Book came a day before estimated. Was packaged in a clear, thick plastic - I found that odd. Book was in excellent conditions, no highlighting - which was a big factor when determining where to buy my books from. Only thing I found wrong it was that a paper from the previous owner was tucked inside - thanks Patrice C! Overall, 100% satisfied.

This is a really interesting book. We hear a great deal about neoliberalism and a great deal about cities, but this is the first book I've come across that examines the impact of neoliberalism on cities. The focus is exclusively on U.S. cities, but the editors have done such a fine job in making selections that you quickly overlook this. Many of the leading writers are here: Elijah Anderson, David Harvey, Mike Davis, William Julius Wilson, Peter Dreier, Joe Feagin, etc. They've also given space to a new generation of up and coming authors and an opportunity for them to reach wider audiences with their work. These include John Arena on the neoliberal reconstruction of post-Katrina New Orleans, Deirdre Pfeiffer on the gentrification of Cabrini-Green, Meghan Ashlin Rich on special tax districts in Baltimore, Henrik Lebuhn on the demise of Los Angeles' South Central Farm, and others. There is a lot to learn from this well-designed, thought-out, and executed volume.
