Product Overview

The Ever-Changing American City seeks to help readers understand how the definition of what constitutes a city in the United States has changed markedly since 1945. The story of the postwar American city is not a simple tale of decline and rebirth. Nor is it a straightforward account of the struggle between the central business district and the suburbs on the urban periphery. In the decades that followed World War II, the cityscape was altered to better accommodate the automobile transforming the city from a place of production to a place of consumption. During the 1980s, city neighborhoods once occupied by migrants from the American South and immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe began to house newcomers from Asia, Africa, and Central and South America. The economic, environmental, and social issues now facing America cities from Portland, Maine, to Portland, Oregon, will require the continual reinvention of the American city.
