What motivates a community like Yonkers, New York to risk catastrophic economic consequences rather than submit to outside pressure to build low cost housing in certain neighborhoods? Are there actually a set of complex factors that inform the political behavior of America's suburban community? Donald Greenberg believes that there are unique variables, including ideological issues, individual perception of a 'community,' expectations of the government, and the proper nature of partisan politics. Greenberg disputes the view that the affluent suburbs are homogenous, calm, and free of conflict while he attempts to illustrate the drama and tension embedded in the politics of these areas. The work focuses on one town, Fairfield, Connecticut and the administration and leadership of leader and politician, John Sullivan. His political career adds a fascinating and important dimension to Greenberg's study.
