An absorbing book, The Evolution of American Urban Society surveys the dynamics of American urbanization from the sixteenth century to the present, skillfully blending historical perspectives on society, economics, politics, and policy, and focusing on the ways in which diverse peoples have inhabited and interacted in cities. Broad coverage includes: the Colonial Age, commercialization and urban expansion, life in the “walking city” , industrialization, newcomers, city politics, the social and physical environment, the 1920s and 1930s, the growth of suburbanization, and the future of modern cities. An interesting and necessary read for anyone involved in urban sociology, including urban planners, city managers, and those in the urban political arena.
