Description - Suburbia: An International Assessment by Donald N. Rothblatt

Originally published in 1986, and drawing on material from the USA, The Netherlands and Israel, this book addresses the question of whether suburban environments enhance the quality of life and which factors influence this quality. It examines whether suburbs really provide improved housing and community services compared to the central city and whether they foster rewarding social patterns and psychological well-being. It also analyses precisely what characteristics suburban areas offer and how congruent these characteristics are with the preferences of suburban residents.
