An incisive, pioneering work on the nature of modern metropolitan life in wealthier countries. Popenoe has sensitively and convincingly portrayed the life of every man in the cities of these nations, where, although the styles differ somewhat, the basic structure of life is much the same." -Journal of the American Planning Association "Private Pleasure, Public Plight should be read, understood, and heeded, because it makes explicit the aggregate implications of unmitigated acceptance of individual choice in urban areas." -Contemporary Sociology "Deserves the attention of all serious scholars of metropolitan areas. It represents a truly bona fide comparative approach to our study of the phenomenon of metropolitanization." -The Annals "As an introduction to the broad theoretical issues of urban sociology, this volume is praiseworthy and should serve as a useful guide in future cross-societal studies." -Social Science Quarterly "This significant contribution to the sociological literature may serve as a guide in public planning and public housing in the U.S." -Choice This is a social and cultural analysis of community life in metropolitan areas of three nations-the United States, Sweden, and England. The author focuses on how environment and culture interact to shape human behavior. Despite their many similarities, the three societies offer remarkably contrasting urban forms, and thus provide a unique opportunity for comparative research. The findings suggest goals for urban community development in America that can help regain a sense of human scale and establish more meaningful face-to-face contact among urban dwellers.
