Summary
"In this book, Gregory Randall presents the history of the planning, design, construction, and growth of Park Forest. He shows how planners - who dubbed the new community a "GI town"--Drew on lessons learned from English garden cities and New Deal greenbelt towns to cope with America's emerging peacetime housing crisis. He also shows how this new town changed community planning throughout the United States, including its effects on community development up to the present."--Jacket
