About the Author:

Jon C. Teaford is professor of history at Purdue University. He is the author of six previous books on the history of urban America, including The Rough Road to Renaissance: Urban Revitalization in America, 1940-1985 and The Twentieth-Century American City: Problem, Promise, and Reality, both available from Johns Hopkins.

Review:

"Teaford has written an exceptionally useful book for undergraduate teaching. His discussion of American cities in the twentieth century is built around clear interpretive themes that students should quickly recognize and to which they can reasonably be asked to respond... This is a book welldesigned for undergraduate use." -- Terry A. Cooney, History Teacher



"A lively, thoughtful, and well-written book that should prove to be exciting for the undergraduate student and useful also for the well-read scholar." -- Joseph L. Arnold, History



"This book has value for all students of modern urban America. Do I plan to use it for my own urban history course? Yes, most definitely." -- Edward K. Spann, Indiana Magazine of History



"The book has much to recommend it as a supplementary textbook for a number of urban and historical geography courses." -- Peter O. Muller, Progress in Human Geography
