Required Reading

Ron Newman

Boston, a Topographical History by Walter Muir Whitehill

The Urban Villagers, by Herbert Gans

Rites of Way, by Alan Lupo

(I tried to link these, but your blogging software removed the links!)


The Nancy Seasholes book is amazing - she has an elegant writing style and her maps are phenomenal. I used her book for a paper on Boston's Chinatown.

Ron Newman

Another book to add to your list:

Boston Ways: High, By, and Folk, by George Weston. You will find at least three editions of this book, which changed as the city did: 1957, 1967, and 1974. The last one was completed by Charlotte Cecil Raymond after Weston's death.
