Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Based on archival sources, published scholarship and 84 oral histories, this book examines the Back of the Yards community in Chicago. Focusing on the period between the wars, the text describes the emergence of a sense of community, as adaption to the American life led to "pride in the jungle".

Review:

"Jablonsky has contributed a book that is a delight to read, that proposes an imaginative approach to understanding the growth of an empowering self-awareness among a local population, and that invites the critical scrutiny of all who are interested in one of the perennial and important issues of the American City." -- Peter GGoheen, Journal of Historical Geography



"A fascinating picture of daily life in the Back of the Yards." -- Harold L. Platt, Canadian Review of American Studies.
