The City in American History

This a two-semester course that examines the idea and the reality of the city in American history. The idea of the city focuses on how Americans have thought about the city and what it ought to be. The reality of the city looks closely at the history of one city, Baltimore, and relates its development to its geography, leadership, and to the external influences over which the city and its residents have little or no control.
