About this item

This book explores how central and suburban cities in the United States have been continually built, shaped, and reshaped to meet the needs and desires of the American middle class—resulting in the racial, political, and economic conditions in our cities today.

• Offers readers insight into the strong connection of the middle class to the city across history, from the colonial era to our modern-day living environments

• Examines how the growing importance and influence of the middle class on the politics and economic conditions of the city in past eras have given rise to the conditions of the poor and working class today

• Explains how ongoing racial, class, and social tensions within U.S. cities are directly related to tangible elements of the urban built environment

• Provides insights into hot-button topics such as segregation, racism, lack of political participation, and conspicuous consumption
