2. Seeing like a State: How Certain Schemes to Improve the Human Condition Have Failed
Author: by James C. Scott

Jennifer Schuessler, New York Times One of the most profound and illuminating studies of this century to have been published in recent decades.
John Gray, New York Times Book Review Compulsory ujamaa villages in Tanzania, collectivization in Russia, Le Corbusier’s urban planning theory realized in Brasilia, the Great Leap Forward in China, agricultural “modernization” in the Tropicsthe twentieth century has been racked by grand utopian schemes that have inadvertently brought death and disruption to millions.
Why do well-intentioned plans for improving the human condition go tragically awry? In this wide-ranging and original book, James C.

4. How to Kill a City: Gentrification, Inequality, and the Fight for the Neighborhood
Author: by PE Moskowitz
Published at: Bold Type Books; Reprint edition (September 4, 2018)
A journey to the front lines of the battle for the future of American cities, uncovering the massive, systemic forces behind gentrification – and the lives that are altered in the process. The term gentrification has become a buzzword to describe the changes in urban neighborhoods across the country, but we don’t realize just how threatening it is.
It means more than the arrival of trendy shops, much-maligned hipsters, and expensive lattes. The very future of American cities as vibrant, equitable spaces hangs in the balance. Peter Moskowitz’s How to Kill a City takes readers from the kitchen tables of hurting families who can no longer afford their homes to the corporate boardrooms and political backrooms where destructive housing policies are devised.
Along the way, Moskowitz uncovers the massive, systemic forces behind gentrification in New Orleans, Detroit, San Francisco, and New York. The deceptively simple question of who can and cannot afford to pay the rent goes to the heart of America’s crises of race and inequality.

Why radiators in apartment buildings clang? Using New York City as its point of reference, The Works takes readers down manholes and behind the scenes to explain exactly how an urban infrastructure operates. Deftly weaving text and graphics, author Kate Ascher explores the systems that manage water, traffic, sewage and garbage, subways, electricity, mail, and much more.

7. Uneven Ground: Appalachia since 1945
Author: by Ronald D Eller Ph.D.
Published at: University Press of Kentucky; Illustrated edition (July 1, 2013)
Appalachia has played a complex and often contradictory role in the unfolding of American history. Created by urban journalists in the years following the Civil War, the idea of Appalachia provided a counterpoint to emerging definitions of progress. Early-twentieth-century critics of modernity saw the region as a remnant of frontier life, a reflection of simpler times that should be preserved and protected.
However, supporters of development and of the growth of material production, consumption, and technology decried what they perceived as the isolation and backwardness of the place and sought to “uplift” the mountain people through education and industrialization. Ronald D Eller has worked with local leaders, state policymakers, and national planners to translate the lessons of private industrial-development history into public policy affecting the region.
In Uneven Ground: Appalachia since 1945, Eller examines the politics of development in Appalachia since World War II with an eye toward exploring the idea of progress as it has evolved in modern America. Appalachia’s struggle to overcome poverty, to live in harmony with the land, and to respect the diversity of cultures and the value of community is also an American story.
8. Distracted and Defeated: the rulers and the ruled
Author: by Mike Bhangu
Published at: BBP (March 20, 2017)
From time to time, the “haves” of society shape and manipulate the type of information the “have-nots” absorb and become. The “haves” tamper with information so to control the type of thoughts and actions the “have-nots” might conjure. If the “have-nots” were free to think freely, they might challenge the status quo.
If the current state of affairs is modified, “the haves” might lose their status as “the haves” and the power they’re accustom to. The accumulation of each instance has birthed an illusion and every person is subject to the misinformation.
To make matters worse, most people are born with a trusting mindset and do not expect the deception. Nor are they prepared for it. The mystery is worldwide and evident throughout written history. The manner in which the world is presented isn’t complete and fabrications are scattered throughout the chronology.

11. Capital City: Gentrification and the Real Estate State (Jacobin)
Author: by Samuel Stein
Published at: Verso (March 12, 2019)
This superbly succinct and incisive book couldn’t be more timely or urgent. Michael Sorkin, author of All Over the MapOur cities are changing. Around the world, more and more money is being invested in buildings and land. Real estate is now a $217 trillion dollar industry, worth thirty-six times the value of all the gold ever mined.
It forms sixty percent of global assets, and one of the most powerful people in the worldthe president of the United Statesmade his name as a landlord and developer. Samuel Stein shows that this explosive transformation of urban life and politics has been driven not only by the tastes of wealthy newcomers, but by the state-driven process of urban planning.
Planning agencies provide a unique window into the ways the state uses and is used by capital, and the means by which urban renovations are translated into rising real estate values and rising rents. Capital City explains the role of planners in the real estate state, as well as the remarkable power of planning to reclaim urban life.

As a growing marketplace takes shape around OZs, there’s far more unknown than known about how they can and should be implemented.
The rules released by the IRS over the course of 2018 and 2019 are complex and number in the hundreds of pages. The Guide to Making Opportunity Zones Work, co-edited by leading Opportunity Zone advisors Ira Weinstein, who oversees advisory, assurance and tax for stakeholders across the OZ landscape, and Steve Glickman, who helped architect the legislation behind the initiative.
