Forlagets beskrivelse
What we can learn from Atlanta's struggle to reinvent itself in the twenty-first century

Atlanta is on the verge of either tremendous rebirth or demographic meltdown. Atlanta has the highest income inequality in the entire country, blighted neighborhoods and hideous highways, suburban sprawl, and racial injustice. While many cities across America suffer similarly, nowhere but Atlanta have they so dangerously collided.

The most promising plan for Atlanta's rebirth is the Beltline, a massive ring of defunct railways already being transformed into a series of parks, pathways, and streetcars. Cutting through forty neighborhoods ranging from affluent to impoverished, the Beltline will complete a twenty-two-mile loop encircling downtown: shifting the character of the city toward a more walkable, prosperous, and enlightened future. By embracing its physical limitations, by building infrastructure and public amenities, and by offering citizens a vision to fight for, Atlanta is hoping to redeem its past and save its future. City on the Verge reveals how cities across the country can transform themselves for the better.
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
In an inspiring story of ordinary Americans taking charge of their local communities, an acclaimed author, using the BeltLine saga to explore issues of race, education, public health, transportation, religion and others, presents a meticulously researched, multifaceted, up-to-the-minute history of the biggest city in the American Southeast. 12,000 first printing.
