In the 1960s, economic revitalization of communities became a priority of new government agencies and part of the priorities of established ones; however, their efforts resulted in mixed results. This book explains the current transformation in community revitalization from market based incentives to mixed strategies of public sector learning, partnerships, and community capacity. It chronicles the struggle of local revitalization as organizers move from trial and error to effective revitalization strategies bringing about. Case studies are included that demonstrate what has and has not worked in revitalization efforts, as well as how active public and private sector partnerships have been the most effective in revitalization efforts.
