About this Item

New softcover. This Second Edition of Zane Miller's classic study of Forest Park includes a new Foreword, Afterword, and Postcript. From the Foreword: SUBURB is book about a small place. It examines the development of Forest Park, Ohio, a single suburban community just north of Cincinnati. Its story is not that different from the legions of suburban enclaves that popped up outside of major American cities over the course of the twentieth century, especially after the Second World War. In one sense, Forest Park was emblematic of the vast suburbanization that took place in postwar America?.Miller?s Suburb is the story of how public investment and private interest combined to create a community tied to the city of Cincinnati but separate from it?Most importantly, Miller identified a long shift in Forest Parkers conception of their community, from one concerned with the overall good of the community to one defined more by individual interest.Miller?s history of Forest Park is significant because it offers an up-close example of the process and politics of suburbanization along with the accompanying intellectual and cultural changes. Likewise, Miller?s examination of three main periods in Forest Park?s progress provides readers the opportunity to draw broader conclusions about similarly developing communities.
