The key terms for most of the neighborhood chroniclers and organizers discussed in this work reflected patterns set in motion in the age of the modern industrial city. But by the 1980s, the epilogue suggests, these preoccupations would be partially pushed aside by new anxieties, symptomatic instead of a postindustrial and exurban metropolitan landscape. The book closes with a succinct survey of more recent disquiets over a putative loss of community and “sense of place” in the U.S., while pointing briefly toward efforts to resurrect the neighborhood in the age of sprawl.
