America's continuing frontier experience was characterized in the
1960s by numerous low density metropolitan areas whose development
was based upon transportation and communication possibilities and
the new technologies of the industrial revolution. The new
metropolitan landscape bred new forms of social organization and
behavior, which found their echo in the political process. This
study represents a significant contribution to our understanding of
the political process in the crucial decade of the 1960s and
examines the consequences of the Great Society at a turning point
in its fortunes. Using Champaign-Urbana as the basis for a
medium-sized metropolitan area, this volume is one of a series of
efforts to examine the long-term trends in American development.
