 This interesting and informative book shows how different groups of urban residents with different social, economic, and political power cope with the urban environment, struggle to make a living, participate in communal institutions, and influence the direction of cities and urban life. 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. Key topics: 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. Market: An interesting and necessary read for anyone involved in urban sociology, including urban planners, city managers, and those in the urban political arena.

About the Author:

Peter C. Baldwin is Professor of History at the University of Connecticut.  He is the author of two other books: In the Watches of the Night: Life in the Nocturnal City, 1820-1930 (Chicago: 2012), which traces the changing schedules of nocturnal activity in the urban Northeast and Midwest during the long century when cities became fully illuminated by gaslight and electricity; and Domesticating the Street: The Reform of Public Space in Hartford, 1850-1930 (Columbus: 1999), which explores civic reformers’ efforts to make the use of streets conform to values associated with the middle-class home. His essays have appeared in the Journal of Urban History, Journal of Social History, and Environmental History, among others. He is co-editor, with Howard Chudacoff, of  Major Problems in American Urban and Suburban History, 2nd ed. He is currently working on a micro-history of religion and sexuality in the mid-nineteenth century, focusing on the diaries of a Massachusetts-born educator.
