From the Publisher:
According to the 2000 Census, over 50 percent of Americans live in suburbs. This mass migration to the suburbs is one of the most fundamental transformations in twentieth-century U.S. history. The Suburb Reader collects the best writings on suburbs from their origins in the nineteenth century through the present day. The Rader is organized chronologically and thematically, and includes scholarly essays, documents, magazine and newspaper articles, and a wealth of reproductions of advertisements and photographs. Like The City Readers, it stands as the definitive volume on this major historical phenomenon.
