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.
