Sam Bass Warner Jr. has given readers a unique study of the historic city's transformation as a maritime giant to manufacturing and retailing hub, to today's service economy. The perfect companion to the urban historian's landmark study on Boston's suburbs. Bass referred to privatism as driving the city. The section I liked most was the middle section because he spoke of the philanthropic nature of many of the city's leaders. The final section was depressing simply because it pointed out the failures of the city and explained that people seemed to lose cite of community.

The city’s growth remained constrained by privatism, but also occurred without real management or purpose. According to the tradition of the private city the municipality could rehabilitate by transit, park, street and school investments what had already been built, but it could not become an entrepreneur in its own right. (213-214) Like Einhorn’s Chicago, even widely acknowledged public health issues such as the pioneering water dept. and its school system suffered from privatism’s inadequacies.
