In this sweeping cultural history, the author of Home and The Most Beautiful House in the World traces the development of American cities and city life from the early colonial settlements to the new downtowns of skyscrapers and high-rise apartment buildings. "A fascinating investigation of what cities--especially modern cities--should be like".--Roger Starr, The Wall Street Journal.
