Baltimore Unbound

A Strategy for Regional Renewal

In his highly acclaimed book, Cities without Suburbs, former Albuquerque mayor David Rusk explained why regions with wealthy suburbs surrounding a poor central city face continuing economic hardship. Now, in Baltimore Unbound, he applies his ideas in an illuminating study of Baltimore's continuing economic stagnation, offering a frank assessment of its causes and possible solutions.

Placing the study in the context of national urban issues, Rusk reviews similar problems and remedial efforts in other cities.

Published by the Abell Foundation.

"When David Rusk speaks, people listen. He is the hottest urban expert in the nation today."

"Once again, the noted urban scholar and former Mayor of Albuquerque, New Mexico, David Rusk, has written a diagnostic book on the disparities in the relationships between cities and their suburban counterparts... Baltimore Unbound should be required reading for all state and local officials and essential reading for representatives of the civic community."
