Published online by the 3Cities research project (see the December 8, 2000 Scout Report) hosted at the Universities of Birmingham and Nottingham in the UK, this electronic text offers excellent multimedia essays on American urbanism as represented by Chicago and New York from the 1870s to the 1930s. Music, photographs, illustrations, and text are used to explore the emergent urban life of these two great American hubs. Pop-up windows offer links to any section of the table of contents, allowing users to navigate both the overall "book" and the individual articles in a manner of their own choosing. A related section accessed via the site's sidebar contains articles and information on issues of architecture (including zoning), leisure, race, and space. A bibliography with hundreds of entries concerning issues of urbanism is also posted. The texts are written in a scholarly, yet engaging manner and help affirm the value both of a well-constructed electronic text as well as cultural analysis undertaken from a geographic vantage point. Users are asked to register, without cost.
