About this title


The central thesis of Place Matters is that economic segregation between rich and poor and the growing sprawl of American cities and suburbs are not solely the result of individual choices in free markets. Rather, these problems have been powerfully shaped by short-sighted government policies.

From the Back Cover:

"A brilliant and important piece of work. Deeply informed, penetrating in its analysis of the problems of economic segregation and spatial inequalities, and bold yet practical in its search for solutions and proposals for reform. Place Matters is one of the best books of applied social science I have ever read and is certain to have a major impact on thinking and discourse about urban problems over the next generation."--Richard Edward DeLeon, author of Left Coast City: Progressive Politics in San Francisco, 1975-1991
