Down the Asphalt Path: The Automobile and the American City (Columbia History of Urban Life) by Clay McShane



In Down the Asphalt Path, Clay McShane examines the uniquely American relation between automobility and urbanization. Writing at the cutting edge of urban and technological history, McShane focuses on how new transportation systems-most important, the private automobile-and new concepts of the city redefined each other in modern America. We swiftly motor across the country from Boston to New York to Milwaukee to Los Angeles and the suburbs in between as McShane chronicles the urban embrace of the automobile. With the advent of the automobile, metropolitan elites quickly and permanently established cars as status symbols. This book includes more than thirty photographs detailing the transformation of urban transportation.
