In the 1980s, the failure of corporate strategies and trickle-down economics led to gross inequalities among many US neighbourhoods and cities. Examining and comparing a gentrifying and a low-income neighbourhood in two medium-sized cities, this book shows how the problems they faced are typical of a number of neighbourhoods nationwide.
