Book Description The Innovation Game, Bethesda, MD, 1996. Hardcover. Third, Revised, Edition. [4], 783, [3] p. Includes illustrations. Photo credits. Chronology 1945-1985. Index to Chronology. WWII Roll of Honor. Milestones in Bethesda History. General Index. This finely produced book was manufactured in Saline, Michigan by McNaughton and Gunn, Inc. This book is printed on acid-free paper. The Chronology frm 1945-1984 is new to this edition. This is the fascinating story of the development of the prosperous region between Rock Creek Park and the Potomac River from its days on the tobacco frontier through the significant growth produced by defense spending. It is much more than the tale of politicans, plantation owners and military leaders, although representatives of these groups are clearly significant players in this local history. It is more the story of the general citizenry that built this suburban area that is so close to the Nation's capital. While not ignoring the earlier parts of its three centuries of history, this work is most notable for its coverage of the 20th century and the impacts of technology (the trolley car), politics (the New Deal especially) and the Second World war accelerated Gethesda's evolution into attractive neighborhoods that maintained in most areas a small town feel. Very good in good dust jacket. Signed by author. DJ has some wear, sunning, and small edge tears/chips. Bookseller Inventory # 66395
