Rome begins his history with a social and economic analysis of the origins of modern American suburbia. It is too easy to flatten history and say that the postwar suburban build up went uncontested and only in the 1970s onward did Americans look back with some degree of remorse and regret. Focusing on the innovations of Levittown, he shows that the goal of affordable housing was not just sought after by consumers, but by the government as well. In reality, the migration to suburbs and the rise of the environmental movement came about together as critiques about the former shaped the latter.
Rome also discusses the impact of Nixon’s National Environmental Policy Act (1970) and the rise of land-use regulation at the state level.
