Looking at the rise and fall of Detroit over fifty years, this important book argues that cities can and must protect themselves from cycles of expansion and contraction. Hammered by neoliberal market policies that impose austerity measures and concentrate wealth, once-vibrant industrial centers like Detroit have become hollow shells. But the damage need not be permanent. By exploring the potential for large-scale cooperative networks to promote urban regeneration and sustain local economies, and projecting the role these cooperatives can play in the revitalization of Detroit following the 2008 financial crisis, Detroit and New Urban Repertoires will be a valuable resource for practitioners as well as academics and students of urban planning, sociology, economics, and political science.
