View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

A brief and well-written analysis, by an insider, of the attempts - mostly failures - of academics and other consultants to provide useful advice to officials of city government during the "urban crisis" of the 1970s and '80s. Though grounded in the experience of two decades ago, the book formulates lessons of permanent relevance to anyone seeking to "speak truth to power."
