From the early 1960s through the mid-1980s, New York, Paris, and London changed profoundly in physical appearance, social makeup, and politics. Here is a lively and informative account of the transformation of the three cities.

Originally published in 1989.

The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.


"The U.S. literature on the politics of urban development is dominated by the thesis that economic forces override political ones in setting the agenda, amassing the resources, and implementing the plans for large-scale redevelopment projects. Savitch's refreshing counterargument is engaging and well written, and deserves wide attention."--Choice

"A highly readable book.... Urban planning practitioners will discover much of interest."--Desmond S. King, Public Administration


"... Savitch analyzes three great cities with clarity, liveliness, and an eye for discerning the way decisions are made. Post-Industrial Cities is a penetrating account of how politicians, planners, and citizens cope with impossible choices. Savitch's vision of New York is compelling, especially as it treats the issue of the city's sharply divided societies. This book is not just for scholars and professionals, but for all of us who value city life."--David N. Dinkins, former Mayor of New York City
