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 Private City book. Warner argued that failure of American cities is that they are ruled by privatism, where the goal of the city is to be a community of money makers, and that private decisions have dominated urban development, as opposed to democratic consensus.

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.

This remains quite relevant, even today. This research is very thorough and helps one appreciate how each city has really grown and evolved.

I was forced to read this for an urban development course. It's fine. A bit obsessed about Philly though. I mean, jeez.

What an amazing overview of the economic and industrial development of Philadelphia! This is a must read for anyone interested in understanding how 18th and 19th century immigrants, businesses and buildings influence the modern city.

This book was required reading for a class I took on Urban History. It spoke of three phrases of development of Philadelphia. 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.

I believe that it is human nature to not want to read what yuo are forced to read. And i was assigned to read this in my HST301 class at oakland university. But goodness, Mr. Sam Bass Warner is interested in things that I am flat out not interested in. My teacher, for some reason, is just fascinated with the idea of privatism, however all it is is saying capitalism in a different way. I'm sorry I just don't care when Philadelphia put in waterworks and who were great contributors to the city. . .oh well
