The historical and contemporary readings reveal how the interaction of local, national, and international forces is reshaping the political landscape of urban. “Police history” predates the evolution of the “police” as a permanent occupational group within a bureaucratic institution, providing the primary state response to crime and disorder. That was primarily a development of the 19th century and a reaction to the rapid social change of the industrial revolution and rapid urbanization.
The Gilded Age and the first years of the twentieth century were a time of great social change and economic growth in the United States. Roughly spanning the years between Reconstruction and the dawn of the new century, the Gilded Age saw rapid industrialization, urbanization, the construction of great transcontinental railroads, innovations in science and technology, and the rise of big business. The purpose of this monograph is to present a set of closely related studies of the ways that private markets determine urban structure in an economic setting such as that in the United States. Specifically, most of the studies focus on one aspect or another of the decentralization of urban areas that has been in progress for many decades.
