Modern American Metropolis

    The Modern American Metropolis: A Documentary Reader introduces the history of American cities and suburbs through a collection of original source materials that historians have long used to make sense of the urban experience. * Carefully integrates and juxtaposes the primary sources that are at the heart of the collection * Revisits and compares issues and themes over time * Reveals how the history of cities and suburbs is not limited to buildings, innovation, and politics, and not confined to municipal boundaries * Explores a wide variety of topics, including infrastructure development, electoral politics, consumer culture, battles over rights, environmental change, and the meaning of citizenship
