The evidence that Rusk has marshaled here makes a clear and cogent case that the survival of many American cities depends on making city and suburb one.
Every mayor, every governor, every county executive, indeed anyone who cares about our great but ailing cities ought to read it.
This book is MUST reading. Rusk makes his argument concisely, logically, and forcefully.
This fourth edition of a standard handbook/textbook supersedes the earlier editions through its presentation of revisions based on the 2010 census, other recent data and literature, and knowledge from recent experience.
