America's Urban History by Lisa Krissoff Boehm & Steven Hunt Corey

The history of the American city is, in many ways, the history of the United States. Although rural traditions have also left their impact on the country, cities and urban living have been vital components of America for centuries, and an understanding of the urban experience is essential to comprehending America's past. America's Urban History is an engaging and accessible overview of the life of American cities, from Native American settlements before the arrival of Europeans to the present-day landscape of suburban sprawl, urban renewal, and a heavily urbanized population.

The book provides readers with a rich chronological and thematic narrative, covering themes including:

  • The role of cities in the European settlement of North America
  • Cities and westward expansion
  • Social reform in the industrialized cities
  • The impact of the New Deal
  • The growth of the suburbs
  • The relationships between urban forms and social issues of race, class, and gender

Covering the evolving story of the American city with depth and insight, America's Urban History will be the first stop for all those seeking to explore the American urban experience.
