Description
Gumprecht (geography, U. of New Hampshire) provides a well-written series of profiles of the distinguishing features of America's college towns. The author explains why college towns developed as they did, and takes a long look at the characteristics that make them distinctive and unusual, such as their residential and commercial districts, their untraditional political cultures, and their status as bohemian enclaves, emerging high-tech centers, or other distinguishing features. Each chapter is devoted to one town, allowing the reader to get a feel for the character of the area and a sense of place. The book also includes maps, photographs, and historical images.
