Abstract:

"The idyllic American suburbs, with their gracious single-family homes, large green lawns, and leaf-shaded streets, reflected not only their residents' dreams but also their nightmares, not only their hopes but their fears: fear of others, of racial minorities and low-income groups, fear of themselves, fear of the market, and above all fear of change. These fears, and the restrictive covenants that embodied them, are the subject of Robert M. Fogelson's new book.".

The restrictive covenants, many of which are still commonly employed, tell us as much about American society today as a century ago."--BOOK JACKET.
