Public Policies for Distressed Communities Revisited marks the return of scholars F. Stevens Redburn and Terry Buss to the topic of national policy toward economically distressed areas. Redburn and Buss first addressed these issues a generation ago and in this new book they explore how the intervening years have redefined the problems affecting distressed communities. In a series of focused, analytical essays the book examines the innovative approaches being developed to tackle the traditional problem-including the new roles currently played by federal and state governments-of connecting impoverished areas and their residents to jobs and opportunity. This book offers valuable new insight and information to public policy professionals, urban planners, and academics specializing in economic and community development.
