Twentieth Century Pittsburgh Volume 1

Government, Business, and Environmental Change

A useful, timely, and provocative contribution to the growing literature on community planning in the twentieth century.
Journal of American History

Roy Lubove's Twentieth-Century Pittsburgh is a pioneering analysis of elite driven, post-World War II urban renewal in a city once disdained as “hell with the lid off.” The book continues to be invaluable to anyone interested in the fate of America's beleaguered metropolitan and industrial centers.
