The cities of the United States present critical political and social issues, including deindustrialization, inner city poverty, crime and suburbanization. These cities also represent centers of vital political and social developments, including the civil rights movement, the new urbanism, urban enterprise zones, the new economy and cosmopolitan culture. This course explores the variety of problems and opportunities facing American cities today, while providing a close look at the politics and culture of major cities like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
