Mapping Decline (online): St. Louis and the American City

If you're reading this, you should read Colin Gordon's Mapping Decline. If you aren't inclined to read much more than a blog post, like pictures more than words, or don't have the $66 for the book, but rarely turn down the opportunity to waste an hour (or more) online, click the image above and get the visually striking images from Gordon's research. Also be sure to check the "documents" box  and learn even more.
