Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0881335290, Paperback)

One of the most widely read and widely debated books on contemporary American urban problems! In the more than twenty years since this book was written, the situation of the American city has not changed fundamentally. This is particularly true of the big cities an their larger, older suburbs. All of the old problems are still with us: racial injustice and animosity, poverty, crime, joblessness, ignorance and what goes with them. Some problems that at one time went almost unnoticed are now conspicuous: homelessness and drug abuse among them. The Unheavenly City Revisited explores what the social sciences have had to say about the problems facing American cities. It tries to make useful applications of some of the ideas and findings in economics, sociology, political science, psychology, history, planning and other fields.
