From the rear cover- "Do you really know what's under the new house you just bought? Was that 'big box' retail outlet down your street built atop a toxic site? Will the warehouse just beyond your backyard be converted into a shopping center, factory, or trucking hub? These are a few of the worrisome scenarios facing us all as our citites begin a stealth relocation of industrial facilities from the inner city to the urban periphery and to reuse old toxic waste sites while creating new ones- places Alan Berger has coined drosscapes."
