Richard C. Wade
Изд-во: University of Illinois Press, 1996, 384 с.
Wade's 1959 volume raised a few eyebrows: it insisted that early immigrants tried to transfer the traditions and culture of their countries of origin into the New World rather than establish an American identity, as was long proposed by other history volumes. This edition contains a new introduction by historian Zane Miller

Judith Welch Wegner, John Charles Boger
Изд-во: Scholarly Book Services Inc, 2002, 614 с.
Precise connections between race, poverty, and the condition of America's cities are drawn in this collection of seventeen essays. Policymakers and scholars from a variety of disciplines analyze the plight of the urban poor since the riots of the 1960s and the resulting 1968 Kerner Commission Report on the status of African Americans. In essays addressing health care, education, welfare, and housing policies, the contributors reassess the findings of the report in light of developments over the last thirty years, including the Los Angeles riots of 1992. Some argue that the long-standing obstacles faced by the urban poor cannot be removed without revitalizing inner-city neighborhoods; others emphasize strategies to break down racial and economic isolation and promote residential desegregation throughout metropolitan areas.

Guided by a historical perspective, the contributors propose a new combination of economic and social policies to transform cities while at the same time improving opportunities and outcomes for inner-city residents. This approach highlights the close links between progress for racial minorities and the overall health of cities and the nation as a whole.

Urban landscapes are an important part of the daily lives of most of the population of the western world. Buildings, streets, gardens and parks are a fundamental means by which we orientate ourselves within cities, and contribute significantly to our daily levels of efficiency and well-being (or lack of them). The creation and maintenance of the urban environment accounts for a sizeable proportion of public and private expenditure. Yet despite the controversy surrounding a few special places, the people and forces responsible for shaping ordinary town and city landscapes have rarely been systematically investigated and are poorly understood.

By viewing urban landscapes in relation to the individuals and organizations responsible for their creation, this book supplies a crucial missing dimension to urban landscape history and a sharp insight into the dynamics of contemporary urban change.

J. W. R. Whitehand graduated and later gained his PhD and DSc at the University of Reading. He has held lecturing appointments at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne and Glasgow, and is currently Professor of Urban Geography at the University of Birmingham. His previous books include The changing Face of Cities.
