EPILOGUE: The Changing City
"A thorough and in-depth investigation of Bogotá's much- praised urban transformation throughout the last twenty-five years. By recounting the successes and challenges of two key mayoral administrations in Bogotá-those of Antanas Mockus and Enrique Peñalosa-Berney makes a profound argument about the power of investment in public space and its signifi- cant transformative potential in the contemporary city."

"Criticism such as Berney's is fundamental to understanding the need for deeper, more profound, and more sustained solu- tions to socioeconomic urban problems that have such long histories."
