Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Brookings Senior Fellow Downs examines the effects of growth management in communities that have tried to alter the course of urban growth. He also analyzes several alternatives for metropolitan growth--alternatives that might reduce the problems that have arisen from the pursuit of unlimited low-density development. Downs's analysis focuses on the relationship between the suburbs and the central cities, and identifies the policies likely to be most effective in helping to resolve growth-related problems.
