Description: When the Cleveland suburb of Euclid first zoned its land in 1922, the Ambler Realty Company was left with a sizable tract it could no longer sell for industrial use-and so the company sued. What emerged was the seminal zoning case in American history, pitting reformers against private property advocates in the Supreme Court and raising the question of whether a municipality could deny property owners the right to use their land however they chose. Michael Wolf's compelling account makes it clear that Euclid v. Ambler fundamentally altered the way our cities and suburbs are organized and cast a long shadow over subsequent cases such as the controversial Supreme Court decision in Kelo v. New London (2005).
