Item description for The City as Suburb: A History of Northeast Baltimore since 1660 (Center Distributed) by Eric L. Holcomb...

"The growth of Northeast Baltimore illustrates the American transition from settlement to suburb. Here we witness a model that has played out again and again on this continent. By revealing the unseen layers of a rich history, Eric Holcomb presents the features of this model that are unique to this corner of the world. It is a specific and loving portrait." -- from the foreword by Kathleen G. Kotarba

Northeast Baltimore has undergone a transformation from a rural area into a "city suburb," an experience shared by many similar U.S. metropolitan areas. Eric L. Holcomb traces this prototypical process from the region's origins as a hunting ground of the Susquehannocks, through its earliest settlement by Europeans in the eighteenth century and its idealization as a picturesque landscape during the nineteenth century, to its rise as a suburb in the twentieth century. Holcomb's obvious passion for the area, combined with his thorough research in geographic indicators such as land ownership patterns, provide a lush empirical foundation for this richly illustrated history.
