Urban disorder and the shape of belief : the Great Chicago Fire, the Haymarket bomb, and the model town of Pullman by Carl S Smith( Book )

21 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though the fire, the bombing, and the development of Pullman from its founding to the notorious strike each has a history of its own, Smith shows that these histories were intimately connected in the public consciousness. Exploring a remarkable range of writings and illustrations, as well as protests, public gatherings, trials, hearings, and urban reform and construction efforts, Smith argues that these three events - and the public awareness of them - informed one another, and that they collectively shaped how Americans saw, and continue to see, the city

City water, city life : water and the infrastructure of ideas in urbanizing Philadelphia, Boston, and Chicago by Carl S Smith( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A city is more than a massing of citizens, a layout of buildings and streets, or an arrangement of political, economic, and social institutions. It is also an infrastructure of ideas that are a support for the beliefs, values, and aspirations of the people who created the city. In City Water, City Life, celebrated historian Carl Smith explores this concept through an insightful examination of the development of the first successful waterworks systems in Philadelphia, Boston, and Chicago between the 1790s and the 1860s. By examining the place of water in the nineteenth-century consciousness, Smith illuminates how city dwellers perceived themselves during the great age of American urbanization. But City Water, City Life is more than a history of urbanization. It is also a refreshing meditation on water as a necessity, as a resource for commerce and industry, and as an essential--and central--part of how we define our civilization."--Back cover
