This study covers the topic of revitalizing inner city neighbourhoods, which has been an elusive goal for city planners and policy makers for decades. Despite a variety of approaches and policy strategies, many inner city neighbourhoods around the country remain poor, neglected and disinvested. The question then remains, what can be done to improve these neighbourhoods? Bright's book covers both successful and unsuccessful efforts at revitalizing low-income neighbourhoods and features case studies on a wide range of American cities. Drawing on field research and interviews conducted in cities such as Boston, Seattle and Pittsburgh, Bright shows how factors such as communicating among residents, proper shelter and a feeling of safety can help save even the most devastated urban neighbourhoods.
