    DescriptionJohn Teaford traces the perception of urban problems and the search for solutions from the turn of the century to the present and examines the ways in which obstinate urban realities have stymied social planning. The second edition of "The Twentieth-Century American City" brings the story of urban America up to date through the early 1990s, with an analysis of recent attempts to revive ageing central cities and a look at a new form of development known as technoburbs or edge cities.

    Review quote
    "Teaford has written an exceptionally useful book for undergraduate teaching. His discussion of American cities in the twentieth century is built around clear interpretive themes that students should quickly recognize and to which they can reasonably be asked to respond... This is a book welldesigned for undergraduate use." -- Terry A. Cooney, History Teacher
