Boston: An Urban Community. Growth and Development in the Boston Metropolis: The Union of Government and Economics--A Marriage of Convenience. From the Psalm Book to the Symphony: Music in the Culture of Boston. From Common School to Magnet School: A History of Schooling in Boston. Annotated Reading Lists.
Levitan, Donald; And Others
These three annotated reading guides continue the series developed for courses offered at the Boston Public Library under the National Endowment for the Humanities Learning Library Program. The first lists 34 readings examining the growth and development of the Boston urban area, and linking the role of government with the functions of urban economics to review its relationship to past, present, and future growth. Music in the culture of Boston offers 28 readings and a selection of audio recordings that exhibit the heritage of three centuries, with particular emphasis on the nineteenth century. The third listing of 24 readings presents the issues of quality public education that have faced previous generations of Bostonians, as well as those faced by the city today in complying with court ordered integration, to provide background for the consideration of existing alternatives.
