Editorial Reviews

Review

Excellent, enjoyable, and jargon-free. . . . One of the best works on mid-twentieth-century urban America. -- Jon C. Teaford, Purdue University

Scott Henderson's masterful study . . . effectively places Abrams' manifesto on race and housing in the context of an enormously creative, varied, committed and influential career centred on critical issues in American housing policy. -- Review

Format: Hardcover
First, let the record reflect that Professor Henderson is a beautiful writer. This biography of a quietly insistent policymaker is painstakingly researched; more importantly, it's thoughtfully analyzed in a way that makes the New Deal relevant to today's issues.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A serious highly informative, well researched and documented book, but not as lively as its subject was (I studied under Abrams), and the book gets unclear and hard to follow in the 2nd half.
