High-Risers: Cabrini-Green and the Fate of American Public Housing
High-Risers: Cabrini-Green and the Fate of American Public Housing, Ben Austen tells the Cabrini-Green story in ways that will enlighten all readers. Austen excels in the ways he humanizes matters of public policy by telling us about people: by offering portraits of residents and others that enliven the narrative and lead to heightened understanding about people who are mostly just like us. Poverty, race, class, politics and real estate are all lively topics, and Austen explores each of them in this finely written book.
