Abstract:

This work offers close analyses of a number of postindustrial European and North American cities in various stages of rebirth. Case studies including Detroit, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland, as well as European cities such as Bilbao, Leipzig, Torino, and Sheffield-, examine what lessons we can draw from these cities' experiences of policies that affect growth, decline, crisis management, and other topics. With a particular focus on innovative policies to promote sustainability and good resource management, the book highlights the environmental damage caused by industrial growth and explores the ongoing work-and exciting potential-of reclamation and restoration efforts.
