Describes the impact or aftermath of Depression and postwar housing policies. Using the houses of Levittown, Long Island, Kelly examines the government-sponsored, mass-produced housing of that period, the families that lived there, and the society that fostered it. For planners, the study offers lessons of the recent past to consider in modern development; for historians, insights to the suburbanization process following WWII; for others, food for thought about the implications of domestic space and design.
