The Urban predicament by William, Ed Gorham( Book )

11 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of contributors bring together much of what is known about some of New York City's major problems. In an "introduction and overview" chapter, the editors of the book take a look at chapters that follow in the context of recent attempts by the Federal government to influence city conditions. A "finance" chapter presents a comprehensive analysis of the circumstances through which most of the largest cities got into their fiscal bind and suggests what each level of government can do to ease the bind. A "housing" chapter surveys a number of past and current aspects of housing, suggesting how all of them relate to each other in the operation of the housing market. A "crime" chapter focuses on the nearer-term methods of reducing street crime, particularly robbery. Also presented is an analysis of the effect that a higher arrest and incapacitation might have on the crime rate. The bulk of an "education" chapter is devoted to an analysis of desegregation in the public schools since 1968. a "transportation" chapter covers most of the problems on the passenger transportation scene.
