For those of a certain age, the image of life in suburban America is one of comfort and familiarity; a time and place where security was easily found in the prosperity and simplicity of one's own subdivision on the outskirts of town. In his book Bourgeois Utopias: the rise and fall of suburbia, author Robert Fishman leads his readers on a fast-paced examination of the orgins of the suburban concept, its rise to maturity, and its eventual status. Fishman informs his readers that the original concept of suburbia is to be found in Britain in the Eighteenth-Century. For most people of meansduring this eraliving in a peripheral zone would have been madness; the only institutions to be found in such areas were those who were in virtual exile from the urban centre. As urban populations and the pace of industrialization increased at the beginning of the Nineteenth-Century, the number of these villas increased, as did the amount of time the middle class was spending at them.
