Reclaiming Hamilton : essays from the new ambitious city

Paul Weinberg (Editor)
"Hamilton has been called many things over the years, some positive--the Ambitious City, Steeltown--some not so much--the armpit of Ontario. But the city has endured it all and continues on, undaunted. In this wide-ranging collection of essays editor Paul Weinberg has collected many of the stories that have made up Hamilton's latest rising. From lost neighbourhoods to the environmental battle over the Red Hill Valley Parkway, from the rise of citizen journalism to the birth and impact of the James Street North Art Crawl, from the continual fight for inclusion to the new fight against gentrification, Reclaiming Hamilton looks at how this complex, storied city is reinventing itself right now."-- Provided by publisher
