Read full description of the books:



This book tackles the notorious fires and abandon buildings that over took NYC in 70's- 80's . This book proves that "policies create ghettos not people", and shows how really 20 years of urban renewal and policies are ultimately responsible for the "ghettos " that came about in Harlem , South Bronx, Bedstuy & Brownsville.

Unfortunately, like most social science books it focuses on only one theory and only provides a puzzle piece to whole story. The authors skim on key factors like fiscal crisis, specific segregating practices like redlining and details of community disruption from highway building. Background information on the loss of jobs due to de-industrialization & globalization would have provided more context. Finally, the authors should have given specific examples of how accidental fires are more prevalent in poor households, such as using stove for heat, candles during power outage.

Despite these concerns, it does provide a comprehensive discussion of the prejudicial policies that turns neighborhoods and the ultimate consequences ( is drugs, infections etc). I definitely gained a greater understanding after reading.
