Abstract

Discusses inner city revitalization, the role of planning, and in particular spatial strategy in centre city (Philadelphia) planning. There is a contrast between those whose environment is improved by such planning and those who find that they lie in its path. Benefits and disbenefits of change are dealt out unevenly according to the uneven pattern of social power. -J.Clayton
