Format: Paperback
Urban growth is pervasive. It can be as benign as following the signs to new housing tracks on weekend drives or discovering that old downtown buildings are being reused with trendy lofts. Is this growth simply the result of a free market at work or is it the result of a specific agenda created by a powerful lobby for the purpose of influencing politics? The Jonas and Wilson text explores through a compilation of scholarly essays, the urban growth machine thesis developed by Harvey Molotch over two decades ago.
It is a great reference point for practicioners, scholars, students or individuals interested in reading about one of the field's seminal arguments explaining urban economic development. As a graduate student I found a great reference point in my research. The reference section alone is worth the purchase. It is a great day for the serendipty of research when you can find a compilation of essays, both critical and supportive, of this major theme in the field of urban affairs.
