About this item

How did American cities change during the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries? This timely publication integrates research from American literary and cultural studies, urban studies, and history. The essays range from negotiations of the "ethnic city" in US literature and media to studies of recent urban phenomena and their representations: gentrification, re-appropriation, and conversion of urban space. These interdisciplinary and intercultural perspectives on American cities provide valuable points of entry for studying the complex narratives of urban transformation in the U.S. and elsewhere.
