Summary

The American Cities and Technology Readerranges from the earliest technological dimensions of American Indian settlements to the ''wired city'' concept of the 1960s and internet communications of the 1990s. The primary geographic focus is the continental United States although the some of the examples extend to global coverage. Among the issues discussed are the rise of the skyscraper, the coming of the automobile age and the implications of electronic communications. Principle studies are taken from several US cities including New York and Los Angeles.
