The Births, Deaths, and Rebirths of Great American Cities

My Reviews in American History essay “The Births, Deaths, and Rebirths of Great American Cities” is now published and (if you have access to a subscribing library’s resources), online.  The essay considers Michael Rawson’s Eden on the Charles: The Making of Boston and Nick Yablon’s Untimely Ruins: An Archaeology of American Urban Modernity 1819-1919,  two ambitious but very different urban histories of the long nineteenth century.

I have not done a search, but it may be the first essay in Reviews in American History to reference Pere Ubu and Devo.
