Sustaining New Orleans written by Barbara Eckstein

 

Sustaining New Orleans written by Barbara Eckstein

Synopsis:

This book pursues two meanings of the phrase, "sustaining New Orleans." One is the perpetuation of the images and ideas and tales of New Orleans sustained in public memorylocal and notthrough a range of activities and media, widely read literature notable among them. The other references the concept sustainability understood here to mean the struggle to balance the competing demands of social justice, environmental health, and economic growth. This book argues that these two definitions of sustaining New Orleans are mutually constitutive. It further argues that widely read literature set in the city, through its engagement with urban folkways that shape and reshape public memory, has participated, for good and ill, in the framing of the city's problems, the proposed solutions to those problems, and the perceived effectiveness of those solutions.
