An overview of scholarly research, both published and previously unpublished, on the history of a city that has often served as a case study for measuring social change. It synthesizes the literature and assesses how that knowledge relates to our broader understanding of the processes of urbanization and urbanism.

This book is especially useful for undergraduate and graduate courses on environmental politics and policy making, or as a supplement for courses on public policy making generally.

From the Back Cover:

A pioneering volume in the field of urban history. Thirteen historians bring their knowledge of a variety of areas of history to the single case study of Pittsburgh, providing perspective on the city itself and on the general process of urbanization.

Review:

“Essential reading for several kinds of people: urban social historians seeking a unified summary of what their field has accomplished in the case of one city; readers interested in any if the topics represented; and of course anyone interested in the history of Pittsburgh.”
--Journal of Social History
