This is a survey of the development of American cities from pre-colonial times to the present, focusing on the forces that have stimulated their growth and transformation. Among the forces given consideration include the influence of immigrants and migrants, commerce and entertainment, technological and industrial revolutions, population mobility and suburbanization, private and public responses to post industrial urban decay, race and ethnic issues as well as class and gender matters. Throughout, the story of the American urban life will be presented in the context of the broader patterns of the social, cultural, political and economic history of the nation. Three class hours.
