9780816692965: Making Suburbia: New Histories of Everyday America
Reseña del editor:

What are the suburbs? The popular vision of monotonous streets curving into culs-de-sac and emerald lawns unfurling from nearly identical houses would have us believe that suburbia is a boring, homogeneous, and alienating place. But this stereotypical portrayal of the suburbs tells us very little about the lives of the people who actually live there. "Making Suburbia "offers a diverse collection of essays that examine how the history and landscape of the American suburb is constructed through the everyday actions and experiences of its inhabitants.

From home decor and garage rock to modernist shopping malls and holiday parades, contributors explore how suburbanites actively created the spaces of suburbia. The volume is divided into four parts, each of which addresses a distinct aspect of the ways in which suburbia is lived in and made. More than twenty essays range from Becky Nicolaides s chronicle of cross-racial alliances in Pasadena, to Jodi Rios s investigation of St. Louis residents debates over public space and behavior, to Andrew Friedman s story of Cold War double agents who used the suburban milieu as a cover for their espionage.

Presenting a wide variety of voices, "Making Suburbia" reveals that suburbs are a constantly evolving landscape for the articulation of American society and are ultimately defined not by planners but by their inhabitants.
