This week, I was pleased to see my review of Richard White’s Planning Toronto in print in the Canadian Historical Review.
What do sidewalks and street pavements tell us about the historical city? Quite a bit, it turns out. I recently reviewed Phillip Gordon Mackintosh’s Newspaper City (UTP, 2017) for Historical Geography.
What does it mean to build a modern city? In the latest issue of the Urban History Review, I review Christopher Armstrong’s Making Toronto Modern: Architecture and Design, 1895-1975.
Planning Toronto offers a refreshing new interpretation of Toronto’s 20th century struggles with planned and unplanned growth.
A review essay that asks: Is it time for a reassessment of the history of 1970s urban reform in Toronto?
Last month I was asked by the journal BC Studies to review a new book that tells the story of the people who mobilized to help Vietnam war resisters settle and stay in Canada.
I asked the authors of the new book Secret Service about the researching and writing of their book.
