Abstract

Urban Policy in the Time of Obama offers a detailed description and critical analysis of the major urban policy initiatives of the Obama administration. Edited by James DeFilippis, associate professor in the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning Public Policy at Rutgers University, this is the twenty‐sixth volume in the University of Minnesota Press’s highly regarded Globalization and Communities Series (edited by Susan E. Clarke).Following an introduction outlining the formidable economic and fiscal challenges confronting the Obama administration upon assuming office, DeFilippis describes the initial hopes and subsequent disappointments of Obama supporters who believed the president was prepared to take decisive action to address the growing challenges of increasing economic distress and social inequality in American cities. He concludes his introduction by criticizing the Obama administration’s embrace of neoliberal urban policies that seek to harness the power of private investment and markets to address such critical urban problems as unemployment, poverty, homelessness, substance abuse, failing schools and violent crime. In doing so, DeFilippis argues that President Obama squandered a historic opportunity to mobilize his substantial electoral base to demand more redistributive economic policies and more inclusive and democratic urban policymaking processes.Through the efforts of an impressive group of contributors,
