Today both the past and the future weigh heavily upon the cities of America. The old disorders of the railroad, the mill, the department store, the tenement, and the cottage enmesh the new disorders of the superhighway, the industrial park, the shopping center, the apartment house, and the suburban development. It is the purpose of this book to analyze a period in the history of city building in the hope that the reader can gain some understanding of the nature and organization of the disorders that press upon him. If the city is ever to become susceptible to rational planning there must come to be a common understanding of how the city is built. This is a book which attempts to describe city building by combining the fragments of local history.
