In an era when many decry the failures of federal housing programs, this book introduces us to appealing but largely forgotten alternatives that existed when federal policies were first defined in the New Deal. Led by Catherine Bauer.

In an era when many decry the failures of federal housing programs, this book introduces us to appealing but largely forgotten alternatives that existed when federal policies were first defined in the New Deal.

Gail Radford's book conveys the struggle that took place and helps us better understand the reasons for the limited range of public housing in America today

Still, when a professor in an American survey course enumerates the achievements of the New Deal, housing may not end up on the list; for, with the exception of a confusing array of government projects, housing expansion had to await the postwar.

In an era when many decry the failures of federal housing programs, this book introduces us to appealing but largely forgotten alternatives that existed when federal policies were first defined in the New Deal. Led by Catherine Bauer, supporters of the modern housing initiative argued that government should emphasize non-commercial development of imaginatively designed compact neighborhoods with extensive parks and social services. The book explores the question of how Americans might have responded to this option through case studies of experimental developments in Philadelphia and New York. While defeated during the 1930s, modern housing ideas suggest a variety of design and financial strategies that could contribute to solving the housing problems of our own time.
  • This book was required reading for my Master's course in Low-Income housing. The title should be changed, to "Modern Housing in Chicago". Using the word America is misleading since it does not cover all of the country. G. Radford is very competent in her research. Living on the Pacific coast I sincerely did not find any thing in depth on the subject.
    (Book was new, excellent condition and delivery service!)

  • We were working on a National Register of Historic Places nomination for a public housing project and this book was very useful.
