This study examines the interrelated transformations of cities and urban congregations over the past several decades. How does the new metropolis affect local religious communities? What is the role of local religious communities in creating the new metropolis? Through an in-depth study of fifteen Chicago congregations - Catholic parishes, Protestant churches, Jewish synagogues, Muslim mosques, and a Hindu temple, city and suburban, neighbourhood-based and commuter - this book describes congregational life and measures congregational influences on urban environments.

Summary:

New Age, Neopagan, and New Religious Movements is the most extensive study to date of modern American alternative spiritual currents. Hugh B. Urban covers a range of emerging religions from the mid-nineteenth century to the present, including the Nation of Islam, Mormonism, Scientology, ISKCON, Wicca, the Church of Satan, Peoples Temple, and the Branch Davidians. This essential text engages students by addressing major theoretical and methodological issues in the study of new religions and is organized to guide students in their learning. Each chapter focuses on one important issue involving a particular faith group, providing readers with examples that illustrate larger issues in the study of religion and American culture. Urban addresses such questions as, Why has there been such a tremendous proliferation of new spiritual forms in the past 150 years, even as our society has become increasingly rational, scientific, technological, and secular? Why has the United States become the heartland for the explosion of new religious movements? How do we deal with complex legal debates, such as the use of peyote by the Native American Church or the practice of plural marriage by some Mormon communities? And how do we navigate issues of religious freedom and privacy in an age of religious violence, terrorism, and government surveillance?

Summary:

American cities are in the midst of fundamental changes. De-industrialization of large, aging cities has been enormously disruptive for urban communities, which are being increasingly fragmented. Though often overlooked, religious organizations are important actors, both culturally and politically in the restructuring metropolis. Public Religion and Urban Transformation provides a sweeping view of urban religion in response to these transformations. Drawing on a massive study of over seventy-five congregations in urban neighborhoods, this volume provides the most comprehensive picture available of urban places of worship-from mosques and gurdwaras to churches and synagogues-within one city. Revisiting the primary site of research for the early members of the Chicago School of urban sociology, the volume focuses on Chicago, which provides an exceptionally clear lens on the ways in which religious organizations both reflect and contribute to changes in American pluralism. From the churches of a Mexican American neighborhood and of the Black middle class to communities shared by Jews, Christians, Hindus, and Muslims and the rise of "megachurches," Public Religion and Urban Transformation illuminates the complex interactions among religion, urban structure, and social change at this extraordinary episode in the history of urban America.

Summary:

For centuries scholars have scrutinized the cities of the Old World, poking into ruins and libraries for unwritten and written clues to origins and demise. The American cities that have played major roles in the history of the United States have also had their share of study. But only recently have historians applied systematic analysis to what is now called the Sunbelt, where half the nation's ten largest cities are located--cities that have grown astronomically since World War II. This volume brings together the important findings of leading urban historians. Addressing a variety of topics such as the reasons behind the Sunbelt's boom, their essays place the sunbelt phenomenon within the larger context of urban development nationwide. Kenneth T. Jackson begins the introduction by pointing out the problem of defining the Sunbelt and the reasons for urban growth in the sunbelt areas during the post-World War II era. Essays by Robert Fisher, Roger W. Lotchin, and Robert B. Fairbanks focus on specific cities and leadership issues: on the attitudes that shaped Houston, on the military's role in the urban development of San Diego, and on the politics of governing Dallas from 1930 to 1960. An essay by Carl Abbott looks at the distinctive physical characteristics of cities in the Southwest. Raymond A. Mohl's essay on the transformation of urban America since 1945 and Zane L. Miller's essay on Walter Prescott Webb and cultural regionalism provide broader contexts in which to view and understand urban sunbelt development. The essays of this volume reflect the individual authors' different methodologies and approaches. Taken together, they highlight the belief that national development and twentieth-century urban trends were as important in shaping sunbelt cities as was the regional culture.

Summary:

In over three centuries of growth and change, American cities have exerted forces that have been both centrifugal--pulling people, resources, and interest toward them--and centripetal--sending out goods, services, and ideas. The story of how these forces evolved over time encompasses almost every aspect of American history. Always cognizant of change over time, this book explores the ways that urban development influenced people's lives and on the ways people shaped the urban environment. A city is simultaneously a social, economic, and political entity, and Howard P. Chudacoff and Judith E. Smith have taken care to examine each of these dimensions of urban life. Their focus is on urban society: its institutions, its activities, and, especially, its people. The authors address questions such as: Why do people go to the city? What do they find there? How do they cope? What do they contribute? How are they rewarded? In this, the Sixth Edition, Chudacoff and Smith pay particular attention to issues of race, ethnicity, gender, the built environment, regional differentials, and emerging cultural forms such as rock and rap music. New material has been added on the environmental impact of cities and suburbs and on the new racial and ethnic mix produced by the most recent immigration trends. In addition, the final chapter has been expanded to take into account issues relating to the presidential administration of George W. Bush and to the consequences of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Summary:

Racial Liberalism and the Politics of Urban America examines the philosophical and political framework that informs public policy impacting racially and ethnically diverse American cities in the twenty-first century. In their analyses of the intersection between race and public policy, contributors to this volume explore the racial character of historical and contemporary American liberalism and draw upon data from the 2000 U.S. Census on topics such as healthcare, the environment, residential segregation, and the changing meanings of race. Consistent with Michigan State University's Race in 21st Century America Conference project, the essays, which reflect genuine racial, intellectual, and ideological diversity, explore the idea and consequences of race in the United States and suggest fresh approaches toward overcoming the persistent and deep racial gap in life opportunities between whites and people of color.

Summary:

The second edition of Urban America, like the first edition, is distinguished by its emphasis on the spatial relationships within and between cities. This emphasis a study of the geographical patterns of residential, commercial, political, and cultural development, allows a balanced, flexible examination of the varied aspects of urban life. It permits a comprehensive look at the social, economic, political, and cultural history of the city. At the same time, this edition minimizes its review of spatial theory; many students and instructors told us the theoretical material tended to encumber rather than enlighten. -- Preface.
