The Rise and Fall of Urban Renewal in Cold War New York

Samuel Zipp

  • Stunning debut book on the history of urban planning and postwar New York.
  • Marks the start of resistance to urban renewal in the 1940s, rather than the 1960s.
  • Compellingly argues that the rise of the global city and urban blight are linked.
