Talking Points Memo Café blogger Kenneth Thomas calls Colin Gordon's Mapping Decline: St. Louis and the Fate of the American City "an outstanding overview of the decline of America's cities."
"Gordon's focus on a single city allows him to map out, literally,
demographic and economic change through the extensive use of geographic
information system software, bringing the trends to vivid life," says Thomas in a recent TMP blog post.
Mapping Decline is featured in an article
on the City’s racial divide in the latest St.
Louis Magazine. You can also listen to Gordon's latest thoughts in a new
podcast interview on the St. Louis Magazine
