Description

Who really is in charge of our rapidly changing cities? Who are the individuals, dynasties and cartels that finance and provide so much of the impetus for our bleak, alienating urban landscape?

Investigative reporter Henry Aubin spent almost two years trying to find out. He sifted through musty files for hundreds of hours and interviewed more than 400 people in six countries to mold this prize-winning account. City For Sale examines how Montreal's citizens became disenfranchised residents of their own city. As with many other cities on the North American continent, Montreal's elected officials acted to a large extent as pawns in the game of international finance.

City for Sale is one of the most penetrating, myth-shattering analyses ever made of land ownership and related forces behind urban development in the 1970s.
