First published in 1985, Chester Liebs' Main Street to Miracle Mile established the twentieth-century roadside landscape as a subject for serious study. Liebs traces the transformation of commercial development as it has moved from centralized main streets, out along the street car lines, to form the "miracle miles" and shopping malls of today. He also explores the evolution of roadside buildings, from supermarkets and motels to automobile showrooms and drive-in theaters. Both an historical survey and invaluable guide for reading highway landscapes, this classic work―which has inspired numerous studies, museum exhibits, and preservation efforts―is now back in print with new commentary by the author.

This is the classic book by Chester Liebs about the architectural evolution of the American commercial strip. Written at a time when interest ran high about this topic, propelled primarilly by Learning from Las Vegas by Robert Venturi, this is a scholarly examination of the evolution of this prominent building type in America. Unfortunately, interest in this has since waned even though commercial strip development has continued it onward march unabated. It is high time for a new examination to update this classic book. For the connoisseur of late twentieth-century architectural history, especially vernacular architectural history, this is an essential book for one's library.

Very well written and fascinating treatise on the evolution of commercial signage and architecture and, ultimately, urban sprawl. During my seven decades of life I was observer to so much of this and now to be able to read an academic description of what I always had taken for granted has been very interesting. Even though academic, it is certainly not dry or stuffy but, to the contrary, a very comfortable and enjoyable read .

An excellent book covering the trends during an important period of economic change.

"Main Street to Miracle Mile" is an excellent introduction to the development of American cities in this century. What's more, it takes what could be a dull topic and makes it lively by looking at such structures as gas stations, motels, and shopping centers and showing how the changes in the architecture of these businesses reflect the changes that were taking place in American society. Good photographs from many parts of America illustrate the impact a more mobile population has had on the location, size, and design of the buildings that serve us. While this book has been used as a text for college classes, it also can be very enjoyable for the casual reader.
