Allen, who spelled out the Coca Cola company's recipe for success in Secret Formula (LJ 8/94), here provides a fascinating account of Atlanta's social, political, and economic history over the last 50 years. Allen's behind-the-scenes glimpse into the negotiations that bought the Olympics to Atlanta is merely the icing on the cake. Regional and large collections should consider.
