About this title


An account of Boston's planning history. Nine chapters detail the key developments that shaped each period of Boston's growth, focusing on the post-World War II era. The text describes the process and significance of all the major projects - from the first wharves to the latest skyscrapers.

From the Back Cover:

'Kennedy serves as a fine guide to the public dimensions of Boston's building process. He follows both the process and the significance of all the major projects--public, private, and mixed--from the first wharves to the latest skyscrapers. Surely here is the book that should follow upon Walter Whitehill's classic Topographical History.' - Sam Bass Warner, Jr., Jack Meyerhoff Professor of Environmental Studies, Brandeis University
