The Introduction explores modernism, equality, and standardization in the development of European suburbs. I question the predominant narratives of post-utopian decline or, alternatively, grassroots resilience and place the book within the framework of studies of suburbs and questions of European immigration and integration. Mack positions Sweden in the context of its international status as an ideal place for asylum seekers and immigrants.
