Críticas:

"Contributors attempt to remove stereotypes-- plenty are called out-- and to legitimate suburbs as a field of study. The topics covered here might fall into several fields ranging from sociology to urban planning, remain peripheral to them, or provoke further investigation."--CHOICE"The book succeeds in demolishing the single sterile stereotype of suburbia."--Planning Magazine"Demonstrating suburbia's mobility as both metaphor and materiality, the collection's diverse accounts of communities, families, and their dwellings evidence how the borders between the cul-de-sac and beyond remain malleable. Take together, the collection answers "yes" to the question, "Do these places matter?" and reaffirms the call for scholars to further study the complexity of suburbia."--Historical Geography"I greatly enjoyed reading Making Suburbia and highly recommend it for academic study as well as personal interest."--Journal of Planning Education and Research

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 ther

Descripción University of Minnesota Press, United States, 2015. Hardback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
