New Deal photographs reveal the inexorable "pull of the city"

even as they lament the demise of rural America

"Nicely-presented, thoughtfully-written, well-argued, and sufficiently-documented, this easy-to-read, engaging book, consisting mostly of photographs...will be of significant interest to general readers, students, scholars, and others." Art Book Review "To the City is a book that readers... Will likely find fascinating. Looking through these images, for example, could help students understand the context for postwar impulses toward urban renewal and suburban life - not to mention the importance of written communication to link city people together (all those pictures of newsstands, business signage, billboards, poster-plastered walls, and movie theater marquees). Give it a look." Journal of Urban Affairs, August 2012 "As a collection of photographs To the City comprises a useful complement to the many anthologies emphasizing the FSA's rural pictures."--American Studies, Vol. 52, No. 2
