Book News Annotation:

Fainstein (urban planning, Harvard U.) develops a normative theory of urban justice centered on promoting equity, democracy, and diversity within the context of capitalist urbanization in wealthy, formally democratic, Western countries. She then applies this normative framework to an investigation and critique of present urban institutions and policies, particularly in relation to urban redevelopment issues and using the cities of New York, London, and Amsterdam as illustrative cases. Finally, she puts forward institutional and policy approaches she believes will promote greater social justice in cities. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
