    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2008; US$ 49.95

    Das nicht nur für Österreich, sondern für ganz Europa ungewöhnliche Konzept des Wohn- und Freizeitparks 'Fontana' im Umland Wiens kann als ein leuchtendes Beispiel für die qualitativ neuartige, (post)suburbane Siedlungsentwicklung in unseren Stadtregionen gesehen werden.

  • Global Suburbsby Lawrence Herzog

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    Global Suburbs: Urban Sprawl from the Rio Grande to Rio de Janeiro offers a critical new perspective on the emerging phenomenon of the global suburb in the western hemisphere.

  • New SubUrbanismsby Judith K De Jong

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 51.95

    Historically, we see the city as the cramped, crumbling core of development and culture, and the suburb as the vast outlying wasteland ? convenient, but vacant. Contemporary urban design proves this wrong. In New SubUrbanisms , Judith De Jong explains the on-going "flattening" of the American Metropolis, as suburbs are becoming more like their central... more...

  • Manufacturing Suburbsby Robert Lewis

    Temple University Press 2008; US$ 31.95

    Urban historians have long portrayed suburbanization as the result of a bourgeois exodus from the city, coupled with the introduction of streetcars that enabled the middle class to leave the city for the more sylvan surrounding regions. Demonstrating that this is only a partial version of urban history, Manufacturing Suburbs reclaims the history... more...

  • The Margins of City Lifeby John M. Merriman

    Oxford University Press 1991; US$ 129.99

    Focuses on the social margins of city life - the "faubourgs", or suburbs, where rural migrants and the labouring poor of French cities congregated in growing numbers in the first half of the 19th century. The text examines the cultural and social traditions which took root in these areas. more...

  • The Moral Order of a Suburbby M. P. Baumgartner

    Oxford University Press 1989; US$ 48.99

As aging housing stock, foreclosures, severe fiscal problems, slow population growth, increasing poverty,... more...
