Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"This is the most comprehensive and knowledgeable account of post New Deal urban policy in decades. Biles looks beyond the intricacies of policy to capture the politics, ideological battles, and competing interests behind Washington's ever-shifting response to the challenges of industrial and white middle-class flight, fiscal shortfalls, decaying infrastructure, and deepening racial and class segregation. An excellent resource for all who care to understand the shape of metropolitan America, past, present, and future."--Alice O'Connor, author of Urban Inequality

"A significant contribution to the field, this will become the standard work on the subject."--Jon C. Teaford, author of Metropolitan Revolution: The Rise of Post-Urban America

Roger Biles is professor of history at Illinois State University. His other books include Richard J. Daley: Politics, Race, and the Governing of Chicago; From Tenements to the Taylor Homes: In Search of an Urban Housing Policy in Twentieth-Century America, co-edited with John F. Bauman and Kristin Szylvian; and, most recently, Illinois: A History of the Land and Its People.
