Titles by This Author

This book offers the first full-scale account of the merchant builders, Levitt, U.S. Homes, Fox and Jacobs, and Eichler Homes prominently among them, who gave a major impetus to the postwar building boom in America and to the American dream of homeownership as an attainable goal for the average family.The Merchant Builders carries the story from the large-tract developments that were built after World War II to the very different economic environment of the 1980s.
