Did urbanization kill community' in the nineteenth century, or even earlier? In this highly regarded volume Bender argues not only that community survivedthe trials of industrialization and urbanization but that it remains a fundamental element of American society today.

Lively and provocative... A stunning critique of the definition of community common in twentieth-century theory... Graceful and intelligent throughout. * American Historical Review *
