Ken Auletta, writer for THE NEW YORKER and columnist for THE DAILY NEWS, shows how the decline of New York City was partly inevitable --- the result of shifting migration patterns and rapidl technological innovations --- and partly caused by anarchic political and economic factions, each angling for its own advantage. His lucid examination also pinpoints the core of New York Citys problems --- the failure of liberal democratic government --- and explores what this will mean for the future of all American cities.A tremendously impressive combination of reporting and analysis that illuminates not only New Yorks situation, but also the most basic trends in the politics and economy of the nation as a whole - James Fallows, Washington Editor, THE ATLANTIC MONTHLYAbsolute must reading for anyone concerned with New York and the urban future.

- George Sternlieb, Director, Centor for Urban Policy Researcch, Rutgers University
