9780674930759: The Urban Frontier: The Rise of Western Cities, 1790-1830

When The Urban Frontier was first published it roused attention because it held that settlers made a concerted effort to bring established institutions and ways to their new country. This differed markedly from the then-dominant Turnerian hypothesis that a culture's identity and behavior was determined by its history and experience in a particular social and physical environment. The Urban Frontier is still considered one of the most important books in urban history. This printing of the now-classic Wade volume features a new introduction by Zane L. Miller.

From Library Journal:

Wade's 1959 volume raised a few eyebrows: it insisted that early immigrants tried to transfer the traditions and culture of their countries of origin into the New World rather than establish an American identity, as was long proposed by other history volumes. This edition contains a new introduction by historian Zane Miller.
