Talking Points Memo on Mapping Decline, Gordon on

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
