About this product
- DescriptionChicago Metropolis of the Mid-Continent provides a comprehensive portrayal of the growth and development of Chicago from the mudhole of the prairie to today s world-class city. This completely revised fourth edition skillfully weaves together the geography, history, ecomy, and culture of the city and its suburbs with a special emphasis on the role of the many ethnic and racial groups that comprise the real Chicago of its neighborhoods. Cutler demonstrates how the geography of Chicagoland and the influx of a diverse population spurred transportation, industrial techlogy, the ecomy, and sporadic planning to foster rapid urban growth, which brought both great progress and severe problems.Through insightful analysis, Cutler also traces the demographic and societal changes to Chicago, critically examining such problems as the environment, education, racial tension, crime, welfare, housing, employment, and transportation. Richly illustrated with nearly three hundred drawings, photos, maps, and tables, the volume includes six appendices with sections dedicated to Chicago facts, population growth and income data, weather and climate, significant dates, and historic sites.
