Zane Miller Discusses Visions of Place

at the Clifton Branch Library � October 14

 

In Visions of Place: The City, Neighborhoods, Suburbs, and Cincinnati�s Clifton, 1850-2000, Zane L. Miller examines the transformation of the Cincinnati neighborhood of Clifton from wealthy suburb to city community. Interracial fears, city planning, and cultural conflict all play a role in the story of Clifton during the 19th and 20th centuries. By concentrating his attention on a few square miles of native turf, the author draws broad conclusions about what the future holds for neighborhoods, cities, and metropolitan areas.

 

Miller will discuss his new book at the Clifton Branch Library on Sunday, October 14 at 1:00 p.m. A book signing will follow his discussion, and books will be available for purchase. A renowned historian and past president of the Urban History Association, Miller is also co-author of Changing Plans for America�s Inner Cities (Ohio State University Press) and Charles Phelps Taft Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Cincinnati. He is a resident of Clifton.
