About the Author

James E. Vance, Jr., is emeritus professor of geography at the University of California, Berkeley. His books include The North American Railroad, also from Johns Hopkins University Press.


"A tour de force that few could rival... It manages to combine the functions of student textbook and library reference work, as well as being a natural addition to the study shelves of the professional urban morphologist."
