The urban landscape in the United States has changed drastically over the past 50 years, and along with massive suburbanization and downtown renewal, there has been a restructuring of economic and political organizations and their interrelations. Benjamin Kleinberg has written this book out of his dissatisfaction with two of the most predominant perspectives on urban policy and development: contemporary ecological and neo-Marxist. He offers an interorganizational//policy perspective not as an alternative theory but as a structural framework for analyzing the shaping and implementing of urban policy.
