American-s landscape is undergoing a profound
transformation as demand grows for a different kind of
American Dream - smaller homes on smaller lots,
multifamily options, and walkable neighbourhoods. This
trend presents a tremendous opportunity to reinvent our
urban and suburban areas. In Foundations of Real Estate
Development Finance: A Guide for Public-Private
Partnerships, urban scholar Arthur C. Nelson argues that
efficient redevelopment depends on the ability to
leverage resources through partnerships. Public-private
partnerships are increasingly important in reducing the
complexity and lowering the risk of redevelopment
projects. This is a must read for practicing planners and
planning students, economic development officials, public
administrators, and others who need to understand how to
leverage public and non-profit resources to leverage
private funds for redevelopment.

In this part, the second in the 1947 volume, the story of
India-s independence and partition unfurls through
documents ranging from newspapers, private papers and
letters, to speeches, maps, cartoons and colonial
archives. The documents relate to the Constituent
Assembly, the partition award, partition in Bengal and
Punjab, the referendum in the Northwest Frontier
Provinces and Sylhet and the princely states, as also
those on the Interim Government and the India
Independence Bill. This part also highlights the problem
of communalism which became so pronounced in several
regions of India during this period that even the parties
which stood for unity, such as the Congress, had little
option but to accept partition.
