The events that took place on Sept. 11, 2001, in New York City are the subtext for this series of essays exploring the response of cities at different times & in different places to natural or man-made disaster. How have the cities coped with cataclysmic change in the urban fabric both physically & psychologically? How have they memorialized what they have lost, & how have they imagined their future? What have been the effects, in both the short & long term, of these efforts to reinvent the city? Here are varying perspectives on urban crisis, resilience, & reinvention. Concludes with a critical reflection on contemporary urban culture. Contributors include urban theorists, architectural historians, cultural critics, architects, & a filmmaker. Illus.
