Book Description:

The term urban brings many images to mind—images of crime, poverty, homelessness, pollution, and overcrowding—and it speaks volumes about the prevalent attitudes Americans have toward cities. In recent years, negative images of the city have been reinforced, as people become more aware of the environmental consequences of economic growth.

About the Author:

Neil Larry Shumsky is associate professor of history at Virginia Polytechnical Institute and State University, Blacksburg, VA.
