We Used to Wait Books

Andres Duany, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk and Jeff Speck: Suburban Nation: The Rise of Sprawl and the Decline of the American Dream (2001)

This is one of the most broad-sweeping critiques of the development of U.S. suburbs during the period Arcade Fire's album also reflects on.

Elizabeth Ewen: Picture Windows: How the Suburbs Happened (2001)

While this book doesn't necessarily disagree that there are problems with the suburbs, its perspective is a bit more balanced, addressing why and how the suburban way of life has appealed to so many people over so many decades.
