David Russo's interpretive history is an overview of the founding, development, and varieties of life of American towns from earliest colonial times to the present. His chronicle is wide-ranging in its description but specific in its illustrations of how towns came into existence, grew or declined, gave way to larger urban areas, and finally have reappeared in idealized forms that provide Americans with nostalgia for a past that most of them did not even experience. Abundantly illustrated.

A must read. -- Sally Brown * Richmond Times-Dispatch * A vivid, bittersweet journey...tightly woven and convincing. * Library Journal * Russo's work is a welcome look back at a subject that is irrevocably linked to the American experience. -- Mike Tsichlis * St. Louis Post-Dispatch * An all-embracing narrative...a success. -- Jonathan Yardley * The Review of Higher Education * ...This is a welcome study that, hopefully, will generate more scholarly interest in an enviornment that most Americans called 'home' until the beginning of the twentieth century. -- David Goldfield * The Historian *
