Featured Book: Spatial Regulation in New York City

In Spatial Regulation in New York City, Themis Chronopoulos examines the applications of urban renewal, exclusionary zoning, anti-vagrancy laws, and order-maintenance policing. He argues that these initiatives deflected attention from the underlying causes of poverty and eroded civil rights while enabling real estate investment, high-end consumption, tourism, and corporate success.
