Summary

This book discusses the revitalization of decayed inner-city neighborhoods. It explores the role of social capital in stabilizing and turning around distressed communities, and it highlights the roles that local actors can and do play in the revitalization process.
The Art of Revitalization takes two Chicago neighborhoods, Englewood and North Lawndale, as case studies. Zielenbach discusses them in the context of racial change and urban decay in Chicago since World War II. The account of the changing neighborhoods is fascinating and clear, and the strength of the author's portrayal of Chicago's transformation sets the stage for his detailed analysis.
