I don't know that the book touches on the curbing labor militancy
motivation per se, but Kenneth Jackson's Crabgrass Frontier: The
Suburbanization of the United States is considered sort of the standard
account of the technological, cultural, and political exegencies, including
US government policies (FHA, HOLC, etc) that encouraged suburbanization and
homeownership in the US during the twentieth century. Might be a place to
start.
