PREFACE

This book was conceived and written largely as a result of a long experience in teaching both housing and community planning in a variety of educational institutions. I have felt that most discussions on these subjects have been emphasizing the immediate objectives of these two important phases of individual and communal living, while the forces which have stood in the way of long-range creative effort have been neglected or overlooked in the interest of expediency. It is with the long- range aspects of housing that this book is concerned.

It will be noted that there is no discussion of the conditions of the slums and the alleged evils which they create. Nor has any serious consideration been given to European housing. The main reasons for these omissions are largely to be found in the fact that a vast literature already exists dealing with both these subjects. As for European housing, I have always felt that we ascribe entirely too much significance to the experience of countries with standards, laws, methods of living, and social attitudes which are fundamentally different from our own. We may seek inspiration in the courage and monumental achievement of Europe, but we must find our own way on our own terms if our efforts to improve housing conditions are to meet our needs and are to represent the American way of living.
