Synopsis

Restructuring the Philadelphia Region Metropolitan Divisions and Inequality by Carolyn Adams, David Bartelt, David Elesh, Ira Goldstein

Looking for regional solutions to local limitations of opportunity in education, jobs and housing

Reviews

By redefining what it means to be a city, this book takes urbanists well into the 21st century. Using the Philadelphia metropolis as an elaborate case study, the authors show us that cities cannot be fully understood apart from their regions, that regions unconsciously govern themselves, and that education, housing, and employment are vital for a region's future. With a keen eye and refreshing insights, the authors have brought the study of the metropolis to a new level and one which should serve as a model for other scholars. -Hank V. Savitch, Brown and Williamson Distinguished Research Professor, University of Louisville, Urban & Public Affairs

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
