Suburban Land Conversion in the United States: An Economic and Governmental Process

By Marion Clawson | Go to book overview

Part II
THE NORTHEASTERN URBAN
COMPLEX IN THE
UNITED STATES

The preceding chapters which form Part I of this book have been concerned with the general process of suburban land conversion in the United States -- general in the sense that they deal with the whole country and use data and illustrations from any city or region for which appropriate information is available. Existing literature about suburbanization has been reviewed and set into an analytical framework designed to provide a better understanding of the various kinds of information than has hitherto been possible. Such understanding is essential to any assessment of suburbanization as one of the most important movements in contemporary America, with significant implications for economic, social, and political life in the United States.

Part II, in contrast, deals with a specific region of the country, the Northeastern Urban Complex, and with a specific period, the years since World War II. This is the oldest and largest grouping of population in the United States, important in its own right and perhaps as a forerunner of what is to come in other urban regions, both here and abroad.

As far as available information will permit, the following chapters make explicit and quantitative what was discussed in more general terms in Part I. Here data are drawn from several sources, including original investigations of three areas within the Complex. Even so, the analysis is hampered by lack of fully comparable and relevant data, especially over a period of time. The sample area studies are utilized to throw light on the region as a whole. Summary discussion of other metropolitan areas within the Complex will, it is hoped, help to facilitate understanding of suburbanization.
