A lively history of the contested landscapes where the majority of Americans now live; "Building Suburbia "chronicles two centuries in the birth and development of America s metropolitan regions. From rustic cottages reached by steamboat to big box stores at the exit ramps of eight-lane highways; Dolores Hayden defines seven eras of suburban development since 1820. An urban historian and architect; she portrays housewives and politicians as well as designers and builders making the decisions that have generated America s diverse suburbs. Residents have sought home; nature; and community in suburbia. Developers have cherished different dreams; seeking profit from economies of scale and increased suburban densities; while lobbying local and federal government to reduce the risk of real estate speculation. Encompassing environmental controversies as well as the complexities of race; gender; and class; Hayden s fascinating account will forever alter how we think about the communities we build and inhabit."
