"I don't know of any single work on another American city that undertakes quite the mission of this work in scope. If I were seeking a single volume that summed up life in a place, this might well be the best of them. For Chicago, there are a number of books that have similar tasks, but none approach the subject so fully." James Lewis, Roosevelt University "Of particular interest to planners are the essays on the city's physical change; sociologist Larry Bennett's careful analysis of the Metropolis 2002 plan; and sociologist Robert Garner's conclusion." Planning magazine "These 26 richly rewarding interdisciplinary essays with a strong sociological focus analyze the social, political, demographic, economic, and cultural changes in the world community since the early 1970s...this book will reward discerning readers." Choice "The editors firmly believe that Chicago, its postindustrial formation, and the struggles that have characterized its recent history must be placed in a global context... [A]nyone who wants to know what is happening in Chicago today does well to take a close look at this volume."Journal of Regional Science
