Summary
Robert A. Beauregard examines the intersection of urban decline, suburbanization, domestic prosperity, and U.S. global aspirations as it unfolded from 1945 to the mid-1970s. Placing the decline of America's cities and the rise of the suburbs into a cultural, political, and global context, Beauregard illuminates how these phenomena contributed to a changing notion of America's identity at home and abroad
