Abstract:

Urban decay can sap the determination - not to mention the soul - of anyone who experiences it. But there are forces that can and do reverse it. They are not spectators, or critics, or occasional demonstrators. They are groups of citizens, encouraged and trained to take power with dignity and creativity and unrelenting determination, and to make it work for them, day by day, month by month, and year to year ... Full of good advice and entertaining accounts of success, [this book] is the story of those who [states the author] "succeed in unexpected ways and in unexpected places."--Back cover.
