Summary: Authored by prominent scholars, the twelve essays in this volume use the historical perspective to explore American urban housing policy as it unfolded from the late nineteenth through the twentieth centuries. Focusing on the enduring quest of policymakers to restore urban community, the essays examine such topics as the war against the slums, planned suburbs for workers, the rise of government-aided and built housing during the Great Depression, the impact of post W moreorld War II renewal policies, and the retreat from public housing in the Nixon, Carter, and Reagan years.

Contributors are John F. Bauman, Roger Biles, Robert Fairbanks, John S. Garner, Eric J. Karolak, Thomas W. Hanchett, Arnold Hirsch, Janet Hutchinson, Raymond Mohl, Gail Radford, Kristin Szylvian, and Alexander von Hoffman. less
