Urban Life and Urban Landscape
Edited by Zane L. Miller

The series examines the history of urban life and the development of the urban landscape through works that place social, economic, and political issues in the intellectual and cultural context of their times. Specific areas of interest include the history of city planning; the history of neighborhoods and communities; suburbs and suburbanization; landscape history and the history of urban design; the urban infrastructure; ethnic groups, blacks, and women in the city; and urban regionalism.
