Overview

Public Policies for Distressed Communities Revisited marks the return of scholars F. Stevens Redburn and Terry Buss to the topic of national policy toward economically distressed areas. Redburn and Buss first addressed these issues a generation ago and in this new book they explore how the intervening years have redefined the problems affecting distressed communities.
