Abstract

"Battle for Ground Zero: Inside the Political Struggle to Rebuild the World Trade Center." Elizabeth Greenspan. Palgrave Macmillan. August 2013. --- After 9/11 came the question of what to do with Ground Zero. This book aims to go behind the scenes of the fight to rebuild, revealing how grieving families, commercial interests, and politicking bureaucrats clashed at every step of the way, confounding progress and infuriating the public. Nathan Bullock praises Elizabeth Greenspan’s book for giving a voice to the people involved in all aspects of planning and building. Greenspan’s emphasis on public involvement in architecture and urban planning will allow for all citizens to be better involved in future redevelopment projects.
