  • The OutsiderThe Outsider
    Albert M. Greenfield and the Fall of the Protestant Establishment

    Dan Rottenberg

    "The curse of history is that it inevitably becomes hazy. The beauty of history is its come-alive revival in Dan Rottenberg's eloquent and meticulously researched The Outsider. As Rottenberg so marvelously shows, Albert M. Greenfield wore a multitude of top hats: real estate, hotels, retail, newspapers, even candy. He was also a marvelous contradiction: a street hustler but of impeccable manner, ruthless in the art of the deal but dedicated to civil rights, the object of despicable anti-Semitism but never of any grudge. What emerges is not simply an indelible portrayal of a great Philadelphian but a great and timeless American." —Buzz Bissinger, author of A Prayer for the City and Friday Night Lights

  • The War on Slums in the SouthwestThe War on Slums in the Southwest
    Public Housing and Slum Clearance in Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico, 1935-1965

    Robert B. Fairbanks

    "Hats off to Robert Fairbanks! It is admirable when an established senior historian is willing to undertake new archival research—and multicity research at that. In The War on Slums in the Southwest, Fairbanks has extended his reach to carefully chosen cities with an energetic research agenda. This is the sort of book that we need in order to see patterns in the general fog of historical detail. It is nicely placed at the intersection of two scholarly conversations—about American housing policy and about the politics of cities in the Southwest. The War on Slums in the Southwest makes important empirical points and provides key interpretive arguments that will be welcomed by specialists on urban history and politics, urban planning, housing, and the American West/Southwest." —Carl Abbott, Professor of Urban Studies and Planning at Portland State University
