Americans Against the City

Anti-Urbanism in the Twentieth Century

Steven Conn

  • The sweep across the entire 20th century - this is not the usual narrowly focused historical monograph
  • The connection between American cities and the rise of "anti-government" politics - it helps explain the geographical dimension of the New Right etc.
  • The connection between ideas (intellectual history) and real places shaped by those ideas (history of the built environment)
