Book Description:
Since the appearance of 'Urban America in the Modern Age' in 1987, the study of American cities has flourished. In this long awaited second edition, Carl Abbott draws on the recent works of historians who have explored issues of urban growth, municipal politics, immigration and ethnicity, 'suburbanization', and environmental change. The fascination with growth and change in the nation's metropolitan areas spans a wide range of scholarly fields, and the new edition also benefits from scholarship in disciplines closely related to urban history, including geography, political science, sociology, and urban planning. Featuring an entirely new chapter covering the years since 1980 and a bank of interesting photographs, the second edition of 'Urban America in the Modern Age' further explores and fine tunes the themes and topics central to its predecessor the physical form of metropolitan areas, their sources of growth and mix of ethnic and racial groups, the shaping of and responses to public policy, and ideas of community planning.
