Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Thirteen historians bring their various specializations to the single case study of Pittsburgh, providing perspective on the city itself and on the general process of urbanization. They explore many aspects of Pittsburgh's cultural and institutional life: race, class, gender, politics, occupation, and infrastructure. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher

“Essential reading for several kinds of people: urban social historians seeking a unified summary of what their field has accomplished in the case of one city; readers interested in any if the topics represented; and of course anyone interested in the history of Pittsburgh.”
--Journal of Social History
