Rybczynski on Homes at Slate

This week, Slate is posting exerpts from Witold Rybczynski's latest book, which traces the development of an American suburb.  Today's post asks why people live in homes, as opposed to other types of structures.  Rybczynski is one of my favorite writers, and his earlier book on home was very influential on my article on Home as a Legal Concept.  Check out the excerpts this week at Slate!

UPDATE:  The second post in the series is on the ranch house.
