Overview

Ending the Stalemate assesses housing and urban development programs of the past 60 years, examines current urban conditions and interventions, and recommends steps that should be taken to link housing assistance, neighborhood renewal and urban development/redevelopment with the forces reshaping urban life. Mary K. Nenno has found that past housing and urban development efforts have been characterized by starts and stops, with significant action coming only in times of national crises such as economic depression or city disturbances. Comprehensive national initiatives to revitalize cities and declining metropolitan areas have been dormant for over two decades despite growing evidence of physical, economic, and human distress. Nenno finds hope for future progress in the opportunities provided by mainstream forces now at work in urban areas: the emergence of the "urban region" as the base for joining cities and their outlying metropolitan areas in a new relationship; and the prospect of comprehensive improvement strategies based on partnerships between public, private, and citizen-based entities.

Author Biography: Mary K. Nenno has been involved in the housing and urban development field at local and national levels for 45 years, including three decades as a staff member of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) in Washington, DC. She has written extensively on low-income housing, urban development and family support policy issues.

Editorial Reviews

Choice
"this is a valuable summary of postwar housing and urban policy."
Choice
For nearly one-half a century, the author has worked tirelessly, executing, planning, guiding and researching community development and housing programs. Programs supported by government, federal and local, as well as privately funded projects. Her book, Ending the Stalemate, provides an outstanding history of development programs and also a discussion of issues that must be dealt with in the future, if urban settlements are to be good places for living, working and raising families. The book should be read by every concerned person planning and legislating for the future.
— Robert B. Pease, Senior Vice President, National Development Corporation
CHOICE
this is a valuable summary of postwar housing and urban policy.
CHOICE - Stephen S. Fuller
Ending the Stalemate is the most significant book in this field in more than two decades. Mary Nenno, with her unparalleled experience and base of knowledge in the field of housing and urban development, is one of the few who could even contemplate writing this book....It is rare to find in one book a complete foundation for understanding the context of past policies as well as the framework for future policy direction....This is a must read for everyone concerned with the future of urban America. It should become required reading for students in public administration and urban planning and provides a long overdue text for courses in housing and urban development.
