Lost in the Suburbs

A Political Travelogue

Book - 1999
Rate this:
Several important social consequences, flowed from the aftermath of the suburban construction boom of the 1980s: the homogeneous nature of the new suburbs, full of affluent white people, the antithesis of urban cosmopolitanism; and the cost of building roads and servicing land as we push farther into the rural frontier.

This schism between the suburbs and the urban core began in California, where Republicans perpetually win state elections on the strength of the suburban vote, despite well-entrenched liberal strongholds in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The burghers of suburbia are stuck on the idea of government spending as a burden on honest people, and on the image of urban dwellers as welfare cheats, overpaid bureaucrats, and members of a condescending cultural elite. And they're looking for revenge.
