Description

Rivertown examines urban river restoration efforts across the United States, presenting case studies from Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Chicago, Salt Lake City and San Jose. It also analyses the roles of the federal government and citizen activism in urban river politics. A postscript places New Orleans' experience with Hurricane Katrina in the broader context of the national riverside land-use debate. Rivertown is a valuable resource for urban planners and citizen groups as well as for scholars.
