One of the major growth fields of the past quarter century, American urban history has generated a rich and diverse literature spanning a number of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities.

This valuable reference work takes a critical approach to existing literature. Dealing with various related avenues of the field which have not always been closely linked together, these essays provide a basis for new synthesis and reinterpretation, as well as for judgment about the lasting effects of the American urban experience.
