For those who believe the success of cities stands at the bedrock of the health of the country or at least those interested in the historical, political and financial aspects of that argument, Here's the Deal is necessary reading. Ross Miller, a professor of English and comparative literature at the University of Connecticut and nephew of playwright Arthur Miller, traces the politics of city revitalization in Chicago from the 1950s to the 1990s. Any book about Chicago politics is, by definition, rife with power making and brokering, and this work is no exception, focusing on the story of a gutted block in the city and the deals between politicians and developers to resuscitate it.

Book Description Alfred A. Knopf March 1996, 1996. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. In the heart of downtown Chicago, on a block surrounded by major civic landmarks, there stands--absolutely nothing. How did this three-acre chunk of prime urban real estate become a blank eyesore, unused and unprofitable? Here's the Deal tells a powerful tale of the players in the great game of the Decade of Excess--and lays bare the grim consequences we face in the wake of their grand, vainglorious schemes. 70 photos.
