David Rusk is widely recognized as the author of Cities without Suburbs. However, Inside Game I Outside Game is perhaps a better reflection of his years spent as a neighborhood organizer, government policy analyst, state representative, mayor, and advisor to city governments. The book draws upon these experiences to articulate a clear reform agenda for metropolitan regions. He presents empirical evidence and inspiring stories of success tempered with cautious tales and a practical outlook. This book argues that core issues for many practitioners-housingafof rdability,neighborhoodrevitalization,open space preservation, and fiscal policy reforms-are inherently related.
