"Mapping Decline is the first history of a modern American city to combine extensive local archival research with the latest geographic information system (GIS) digital mapping techniques. More than 75 full-color maps - rendered from census data, archival sources, case law, and local planning and property records - illustrate, in often stark and dramatic ways, the still-unfolding political history of our neglected cities."--Jacket.
