Publisher's Comments

In this study of the American influence on British urban development in the period 2040-2010, Clapson (history, Westminster U., England) proceeds through examinations of wartime liaisons involved in strategic management of cities, the influence of American sociology on urban policy thinking and the American philanthropic funding of new urban research centers in Britain during the 1950s and 1960s, the development of the British evolution from localizing neighborhood units during the 1940s to an acceptance of increasing motorization and spatial mobility by the 1960s, the planning and development of the new town of Milton Keynes, British influence on planned new American communities 27 the 1960s, the utilization of American urban sociology's frames of "race relations" for addressing the "inner city" in Britain, and an assessment of the impact of the American-originated New Urbanism as applied in Milton Keynes.
