Kinton, Jack F.
This is an extensive bibliography of publications dealing with the quest for community in the United States. Listed are publications from a number of academic disciplines, including anthropology, sociology, history, political science, architecture, and city and regional planning. The largest section is devoted to books, which are listed alphabetically by author. Each entry is preceded by one or more code letters that indicate which of 20 specific topics are most relevant to the book. Following the book section are two short sections; one lists major periodicals that often contain articles on theory, the community, or urbanization and one lists applied professional publications on the community or urban and municipal affairs. Other lists cover periodicals that are recommended for regular reading, academic periodicals that devote entire issues to urban life, and urban studies research centers throughout the U.S. (JG)
