Simultaneously defining and being defined by its surroundings, the town house is one of the most fascinating and innovative housing possibilities of today. The book is a compilation of some of the more interesting town houses which have been recently constructed. If we had to highlight one characteristic from the projects presented here, it would be thier ability to make the most of thier space in such creative ways. Within the basic typology of flat walls, a world of possiblities open: spaces full of light, endless staircases, curtain walls, facades which spread completely out into the street, of enclosed areas that lead into mysterious gardens and interior patios. The play between inside and out, public and private, work space and living space is intrinsic to the language spoken by the new town house: a house that proposes a modern way of dwelling in today's urban landscapes. A superb selection of recent projects that are outstanding in their creative interpretation of the contemporary urban home.

From tenements to alleyways to latrines, twentieth-century American cities created spaces where pests flourished and people struggled for healthy living conditions. In Pests in the City, Dawn Day Biehler argues that the urban ecologies that supported pests were shaped not only by the physical features of cities but also by social inequalities, housing policies, and ideas about domestic space. Community activists and social reformers strived to control pests in cities such as Washington, DC, Chicago, Baltimore, New York, and Milwaukee, but such efforts fell short when authorities blamed families and neighborhood culture for infestations rather than attacking racial segregation or urban disinvestment. Pest-control campaigns tended to target public or private spaces, but pests and pesticides moved readily across the porous boundaries between homes and neighborhoods. This story of flies, bedbugs, cockroaches, and rats reveals that such creatures thrived on lax code enforcement and the marginalization of the poor, immigrants, and people of color. As Biehler shows, urban pests have remained a persistent problem at the intersection of public health, politics, and environmental justice, even amid promises of modernity and sustainability in American cities.
