Detroit: Three Pathways to Revitalization

Solomon, Lewis D. 2014. Detroit: Three Pathways to Revitalization. New Brunswick: Transaction Publishers.

This slim report skips too quickly over the economic and political history of the city and rushes ahead to make a range of proposals focusing on the public sector (including schools), the private sector, and a proposed “alternative political economy sector.” History has already outrun some of these ideas (the book was written before the bankruptcy). The most interesting section of Solomon’s book is the third one, but it is far too skimpy at a mere dozen pages. Developing green areas for community-based agriculture is given a nod, and the book ends by suggesting but not developing the eccentric idea of creating a local currency.
