Bourgeois Utopias: The Rise and Fall of Suburbia

Robert Fishman, Author Basic Books $19.5 (272p) ISBN 978-0-465-00747-9
Unlike the pre-modern city, where workplaces and residences were integrated, suburbia, as this ``searching study'' reveals, is a middle-class invention. In tracing suburban history, Fishman ``makes us keenly aware that modern, class-segregated suburbs represent a total transformation of urban values,'' reported PW. (Mar.)
