    A very well researched and balanced account of the rise of the real estate industry, urban planning, and America s immense and industry planned suburban housing developments This is also a very boring book, which is curious as the way in which suburbs developed has twisted the American psyche and every facet of American life in ways that are far reaching and deeply insidious The immense interest of this book, which is there almost in spite of itself, becomes most clear in the way that others have used Weiss s findings to delve into the role of developers and corporate interest in creating deed covenants and zoning, building common sense ideas of what it means to be American centred on the ownership of property, and how this wielding of planning with its focus on profit and property values in a deeply racist society has created the deeply segregated and unjust communities we see today It contains the nuggets of information such as the quote below that illuminate this, along with the implications of corporate domination of public planning on society and cities, but they are never expanded upon or discussedthis is left to others The second source of legal precedent for public regulation of private land use in 1908 was also derived from nuisance law, but contained a very different social purpose racial and ethnic segregation W.L Pollard, well known city planning attorney for the Los Angeles Realty Board and the California Real Estate Association, stated the issue clearly It may sound foreign to our general ideas of the background of zoning, yet racial hatred played no small part in bringing to 83 the front some of the early districting ordinances which were sustained by the United States Supreme Court, thus giving us our first important zoning decisions 84

    Rise of the Community Builders demonstrates the impact of real estate firms that created subdivisions, community builders, and their role in the industry and particularly urban planning Many of the tools used to create and maintain subdivisions, lot size and minimum housing construction costs, and other restrictions later became accepted as good urban planning This also included racially restrictive covenants He focuses on changes with the Los Angeles Realty Board and the California Real Estate Association, demonstrating how these case studies really impacted real estate nationally What i appreciate most about this text is the archival excavation He unearths some forgotten planning documents and sources to weave this narrative Most helpful for my own research is his investigation into what realtors said themselves He utilizes publications like CREA s California Real Estate magazine and even the League of California Municipalities Pacific Municipalities He also utilizes proceedings from national and state Conferences of City Planning Great resource for identifying sources, in the same way his 1986 case study on Berkeley lifted up sources about residential segregation in Berkeley.
