Making Contact

Reclaiming Gotham: The Battle for U.S. Cities

On today’s Making Contact, journalist Juan González discusses his new book, Reclaiming Gotham.  He chronicles the evolution of the growth machine in America’s cities – from redlining and racial covenants in the early 20th century, to land grabs and privatization in the 21st – and the rise of progressive alliances to reclaim them.
