'“Bob Fitch has turned over every document in the archives to find out who was in the firing squad that murdered New York: the unelected power brokers in the boardrooms, the planners from private foundations, and the political puppets who meekly pulled the trigger on blue-collar industries when they were given the order to shoot. . . . Nothing that has been written about New York . . . comes close.” —Newsday “Fitch, who has taught urban studies and consulted for an organizations, is a modern-day muckraker. This is a passionate book, compelling even when one disagrees with details of Fitch’s argument and even when he’s patently wrong. . . . An important attack on the prevailing notion that New York must make itself into a ‘postindustrial’ city.
