Press release: Kruse, The New Suburban History

jacket imageThe ten essays in The New Suburban History are all written by historians on the cutting edge of an expanding field, and draw on original research on locales across the country, from California to Michigan to North Carolina. Paying special attention to the little-known histories of blue-collar, African American, Latino, and Asian suburbanites, the authors shed light on the role suburbs have played in the transformation of liberalism and conservatism; in the contentious politics of race, class, and ethnicity; and in debates about the environment, land use, taxation, and regulation.
