Alan Ehrenhalt

Most recent books of cities tend to be breathless accounts by civic boosters. Ehrenhalt avoids facile generalizations—People are Returning to the City!—and instead takes a close look at how specific American cities are changing, both demographially and physically. He focuses on eight metropolitan areas, finding complex patterns that vary from place to place: gentrification, suburban densification, downtown invention, and resistance to change, as well as stagnation.
