Kansas City and the Railroads: Community Policy in the Growth of a Regional Metropolis - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 9780700606153

ID: 2564496

Kansas City was only one of several trading centers along the Missouri River in the mid-nineteenth century. And not the largest at that. But it expanded rapidly into the region's leading commercial city while nearby towns showed only moderate growth or were absorbed by their suddenly urban neighbor. Why did Kansas City take off while others stayed behind? Kansas City got the railroads, says Charles Glaab. But major rail lines did not merge in Kansas City by happenstance. In this classic urban study, Glaab illustrates the crucial role entrepreneurship and boosterism played in determining rail locations and consequently urban-growth patterns. To persuade the railroad companies to connect through Kansas City rather than its rivals-Leavenworth, St. Joseph, Westport, Independence, Lawrence, and Athison-local boosters, chief among them journalist Robert T. Van Horn, developed better community policies, formed stronger coalitions, and implemented more effective economic development programs than their neighbors. Political maneuvering, individual decision making, and local promotion of internal improvements, as well as greed and corruption, Glaab contends, played key roles in determining the location of this regional metropolis. Extending beyond the borders and idiosyncrasies of one urban area, Glaab also demonstrates how what happened in Kansas City is representative of what happened across the western half of the United States. First published in 1962, Kansas City and the Railroads remains highly regarded as a landmark study of the forces that shaped the growth of urban America. In this edition, Glaab has included a new preface explaining the development of this study and its relation to theliterature that has appeared over the last thirty years.

Kansas City and the Railroads is the classic study of how Kansas City became a leading transportation center and the most important city between St. Louis and Denver. It illustrates the crucial role entrepreneurship, boosterism, political maneuvering, and individual decision making - as well as greed and corruption - played in determining rail locations and consequently urban-growth patterns. First published in 1962, it remains highly regarded as a landmark study of the forces that shaped the growth of urban America. In this edition Glaab has included a new preface explaining the development of this study and its relation to the literature that has appeared over the last thirty years. Charles N.
