This comprehensive survey of urban growth in America has become a standard work in the field. From the early colonial period to the First World War, John Reps explores to what extent city planning has been rooted in the nation's tradition, showing the extent of European influence on early communities. Illustrated by over three hundred reproductions of maps, plans, and panoramic views, this book presents hundreds of American cities and the unique factors affecting their development.

About the Author:

John W. Reps is Professor Emeritus of City and Regional Planning at the College of Architecture, Cornell University. His works include Cities of the American West: A History of Urban Planning (Princeton).

Review:

An exhaustive research document on the history of city planning in the United States. . . . A cartographic gem. (The New York Times)

An extraordinarily handsome volume. (The Los Angeles Times)

This excellent book may well be described as the missing link in American town planning history. No book [to date] has comprehensively dealt with American urban development from the earliest colonial settlements to modern times. Reps has filled this gap with his lavishly illustrated work. (Journal of the Town Planning Institute)
