Editorial Reviews


Teaford has written an exceptionally useful book for undergraduate teaching. His discussion of American cities in the twentieth century is built around clear interpretive themes that students should quickly recognize and to which they can reasonably be asked to respond... This is a book welldesigned for undergraduate use.

(Terry A. Cooney History Teacher)

A lively, thoughtful, and well-written book that should prove to be exciting for the undergraduate student and useful also for the well-read scholar.

(Joseph L. Arnold History)

This book has value for all students of modern urban America. Do I plan to use it for my own urban history course? Yes, most definitely.

(Edward K. Spann Indiana Magazine of History)

The book has much to recommend it as a supplementary textbook for a number of urban and historical geography courses.

(Peter O. Muller Progress in Human Geography)

4.0 out of 5 stars An insightful book for anyone December 4, 1998
By A Customer
This book went through each decade and described how the times effected the development of the American City. There were numerous examples that painted a clear picture of what it was like to live during the time of prohibition, the depression, or the suburbanization of the 60's. Teaford makes the usually boring subject of history enjoyable!
