Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Author Teaford traces the perception of urban problems and the search for solutions from the turn of the century through the present, and examines the ways in which obstinate urban realities have stymied social planning. The second edition of "The Twentieth-Century American City" brings the story of urban America up to date through the early 1990s, with an analysis of recent attempts to revive aging central cities, and a look at a new form of development known as technoburbs.
