"Brown’s skillful and well-documented book succeeds both as a work of scholarship and a provocative story.”



"Highly recommended."



America's Waterfront Revival is a well-written, well-edited and well-illustrated discussion of redevelopment concepts, strategies and cases. “



“Overall, I found Brown’s book to be one of the most interesting windows I have found in the planning literature for understanding how public authorities evolve over time and how their powers and ability to perform are impacted by legislation, board composition, political independence, labor unions, economic trends, and increasing diversity of their city’s constituents."‚Äč

“As a real estate developer, I not only thoroughly enjoyed the book, but I also learned quite a lot about other cities, projects, and real estate developers.”



“I think Peter Brown’s book is grand. The topic is fresh, and his approach to it is superb.”



“I've been recommending this book to fellow developers, architects, and anyone who cares about the built environment. It is full of great stories, profiles, and gives insight into our world to those who aspire to develop or want to understand how we think.”



“An academic's guilty beach read!”



“Wonderful book. I have shared several copies with my co-workers
