Synopsis: This history of skyscrapers examines how these tall buildings affected the cityscape and the people who worked in, lived in, and visited them. Much of the focus is rightly on the architects who had the vision to design and build America's skyscrapers, but attention is also given to the steelworkers who built them, the financiers who put up the money, and the daredevils who attempt to "conquer" them in some inexplicable pursuit of fame. The impact of the skyscraper on popular culture, particularly film and literature, is also explored.

About the Author: George H. Douglas, a retired English professor, has written a number of books about American people and places. He is the author of The Early Days of Radio Broadcasting (2001), and lives in Champaign, Illinois.
