Россия в войне 1941-1945


This book provides an eye-opening account of recent battles over publicly financed stadiums in some of America?s largest cities. The authors? interviews with key decision makers present a behind-the-scenes look at how and why powerful individuals and organizations foist these sports palaces on increasingly unreceptive communities. In the face of studies demonstrating that new sports facilities don?t live up to their promise of big money, proponents are using a new tactic to win public subsidies? touting intangible "social" rewards, such as prestige and community cohesion. The authors find these to be empty promises as well, demonstrating that new stadiums may exacerbate, rather than erase, many social problems. Public Dollars,Private Stadiums should be read by everyone with an interest in the future of sports and our cities.
