9780070481282: The Suburbs

In spite of more Americans now being suburbanites than city residents, there is very little written on suburbs. In terms of overall analysis (rather than single case studies) there are only a handful of urban histories of 19th-century suburbs, and most of these were written over a decade ago. This text revolutionizes and facilitates the discussion of modern suburbs, providing an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of contemporary suburbia and its history. It contains data from the 1990 Census, and details and discusses the dramatic increases in African-American, Asian and Hispanic suburbanization. Additionally the text tackles such topics as the myths regarding women and families in the suburbs, the malling of America, and planned utopian communities.
