Question description

We often imagine our cities as places where people from differing cultural, ethnic, social, political, and religious backgrounds come together and enrich the lives of one another. This is a model of cultural symbiosis. However, the chapter, “The Industrial City,” from your textbook paints quite a different picture of our early cities.

Review this chapter and choose one of the following writers from this chapter:

  • Flower
  • Addams
  • Strong
  • Steffens
  • Plunkitt
  • Mumford

Then, address the following:

  • Summarize the selected writer’s understanding and experience of city life.
  • Analyze whether he or she agrees or disagrees with the idea that all people—regardless of race, nationality, or religion—experience cities as vibrant sites of cultural exchange and enrichment. Be sure to cite specific details from the text that either support or critique this romantic view of city life.
  • Explore the potential limitations of this author’s point of view. Are there things that he or she fails to take into account regarding city life? If so, what does he or she fail to mention and why?
