Downtown : its rise and fall, 1880-1950 by Robert M Fogelson( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by one of this country's foremost urban historians, Downtown is the first history of what was once viewed as the heart of the American city. It tells the fascinating story of how downtown - and the way Americans thought about downtown - changed over time. By showing how businessmen and property owners worked to promote the well-being of downtown, even at the expense of other parts of the city, it also gives a riveting account of spatial politics in urban America
The fragmented metropolis: Los Angeles, 1850-1930 by Robert M Fogelson( Book )

"Here with a new preface, a new foreword, and an updated bibliography is the definitive history of Los Angeles from its beginnings as an agricultural village of fewer than 2,000 people to its emergence as a metropolis of more than 2 million in 1930 -- a city whose distinctive structure, character, and culture foreshadowed much of the development of urban America after World War II."--Publisher description
Big-city police by Robert M Fogelson( Book )

15 editions published between 1977 and 1997 in English and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book looks at the impact of two major police reform movements on the social mobility of ethnic groups, the distribution of political power, the struggle for status in urban America, and police professionalism are explored. Social and political pressures which led to waves of police reform in 1890 to 1930 and again about 1940 to 1970 not only changed the average city police department into a centralized, trained group of professionals, but also changed the character of the American city. Before 1890, the police department was an adjunct of the political machine. Ward bosses hired and fired; therefore, police loyalty was to the neighborhood. Most patrol jobs were political rewards and went to immigrants or sons of immigrants from the immediate area. Laws were enforced on an ethnic basis. The cost of this community control was widespread corruption and abuse. The first wave of reform began about 1890 when middle-class clergymen, business leaders, and social reformers began a move to centralize the police and remove political appointments. A military model was adopted and the phrase 'war on crime' coined. By 1930 most major police departments had adopted the centralized beat approach and a civil service system was beginning. A second wave of reform came from within police departments themselves. Greater training, greater professionalism, and greater status for police were the cornerstones of this wave. The emergence of police unions, which became major political power blocs, increased the force of the movement. A third reform started tentatively in the late 1960s. This movement calls for return of police accountability to the neighborhoods. To date, it has made little headway because police commissioners have incorporated its protests into the existing police department structure through community relations boards, community grievance procedures, and other institutionalized devices

Bourgeois nightmares : suburbia, 1870-1930 by Robert M Fogelson( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 great rent wars : New York, 1917-1929 by Robert M Fogelson( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by one of the country's foremost urban historians, The Great Rent Wars tells the fascinating but little-known story of the battles between landlords and tenants in the nation's largest city from 1917 through 1929. These conflicts were triggered by the post-war housing shortage, which prompted landlords to raise rents, drove tenants to go on rent strikes, and spurred the state legislature, a conservative body dominated by upstate Republicans, to impose rent control in New York, a radical and unprecedented step that transformed landlord-tenant relations. The Great Rent Wars traces the tumultuous history of rent control in New York from its inception to its expiration as it unfolded in New York, Albany, and Washington, D.C. At the heart of this story are such memorable figures as Al Smith, Fiorello H. La Guardia, and Oliver Wendell Holmes, as well as a host of tenants, landlords, judges, and politicians who have long been forgotten. Fogelson also explores the heated debates over landlord-tenant law, housing policy, and other issues that are as controversial today as they were a century ago"--Provided by publisher
