Cities Back From The Edge
Title: Cities Back From The Edge

ISBN: 0471361240

Gratz, an award-winning journalist and urban critic, and Mintz, a leader in the field of downtown revitalization for more than 25 years present new ideas for the revitalization of our downtown areas. A collection of visitor attractions does not add up to a city, whether those attractions are cultural centers, convention centers, aquariums, stadiums or enclosed malls. Discover important things going on in your city that are having devastating effects on the future of your community. A provocative book filled with new ideas to shake-up conventional wisdom.
From The Wall Street Journal
In Cities Back from the Edge, Gratz and Mintz offer a love song for the city...their volume, attractively packaged and richly illustrated, is really a cookbook for downtown revitalization. It turns out the most valuable contribution to urban understanding of the year isn't only a book, it's also a bumper sticker: Think globally, act locally.
