First published in 1981, the essays in After the Developers look to the future of Canada's cities at a time when the great urban boom of the 1960s and '70s began to lose its relentless thrust.
Looking to the government economic policies that shaped post-war growth, they analyze the fundamental changes that altered Canadian cities so quickly and dramatically. They also consider the equally dramatic changes in city politics at this time, tracing how citizen groups and reform politicians broke the decision-making stranglehold of a development-minded old guard.
After the Developers offers an assessment of the state of city planning and urban development view from a crucial period in Canadian history.
