Description
America's cities have symbolized the nation's prosperity, dynamism, and innovation. Even with the trend toward suburbanization, many central cities attract substantial new investment and employment. Within this profile of health however, many urban areas are beset by problems of economic disparity, physical deterioration, and social distress.

This volume addresses the condition of the city from the perspective of the larger metropolitan region. It offers important, thought-provoking perspectives on the structure of metropolitan-level decisionmaking, the disadvantages faced by cities and city residents, and expanding economic opportunity to all residents in a metropolitan area. The book provides data, real-world examples, and analyses in key areas:
-- Distribution of metropolitan populations and what this means for city dwellers, suburbanites, whites, and minorities.
-- How quality of life depends on the spatial structure of a community and how problems are based on inequalities in spatial opportunity -- with a focus on the relationship between taxes and services.
-- The role of the central city today, the rationale for revitalizing central cities, and city-suburban interdependence.
