Summary

Summary

Original contributions deal with one of the most intriguing developments in recent urban history -- the sudden economic and political rise of the Sunbelt cities in the American South.

'This is a provocative book. Its essays go substantially beyond popular treatments of southward shifts in population and economics. They put the rise of sunbelt cities into the context of American urban history, and clarify the events taking place in various urban strata...All told, the book will carry its weight as a supplement to urban politics courses at the undergraduate level and several of its pieces will find themselves widely cited by specialists in the field.' -- American Political Science Review, Vol 73, September 1979
