The works compiled in this bibliography by Susan L. Klaus, the Center's Banneker Fellow in the 1985-1986 academic year, provide the information which can help the reader reconstruct the greenbelt tradition. Scholars and social critics have contributed a rich literature on the subject, and the Greenbelt fiftieth anniversary conference planned for May 1 and 2, 1987, should deepen our understanding and appreciation of the new towns movement both past and present. For the moment, however, in an age of voluntarism, it may just well be the experiences of Greenbelt residents which provides the most eloquent testimony that even utopian thinking can have its practical consequences in providing a better world to live in. The people of Greenbelt have extended and adapted to new times the spirit of another era, and on the eve of their anniversary celebration, we salute them for helping make the new town ideal a viable reality.
