"It is vital that urban policy-makers learn the right lessons from past failures- and past successes. Anne Power's new book is a rich source for anyone who cares about the future of cities." Howard Davies, Director London School of Economics and Political Science "As we embark on a new era of urbanism, based on resilience, equity and sustainability, there's so much to learn from these 'Boom, Bust and Recover' case studies. A hugely insightful piece of work." Jonathon Porritt, Founder Director, Forum for the Future
