American Towns: An Interpretive History (Hardback)

£19.95
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

David Russo's interpretive history is an overview of the founding, development, and varieties of life of American towns from earliest colonial times to the present. His chronicle is wide-ranging in its description but specific in its illustrations of how towns came into existence, grew or declined, gave way to larger urban areas, and finally have reappeared in idealized forms that provide Americans with nostalgia for a past that most of them did not even experience. Abundantly illustrated.

David J. Russo is professor of history at McMaster University. His other books include American History from a Global Perspective, Clio Confused, and Keepers of Our Past, which Choice named an outstanding book in 1988-1989. He lives in Hamilton, Ontario.
