Summary
One of Detriot's most defining modern characteristics--and most pressing dilemmas--is its huge amount of neglected and vacant land. In Mapping Detroit, editors June Manning Thomas and Henco Bekkering illustrate how Detroit moved from frontier fort to thriving industrial metropolis to today's high-vacancy city. It offers a unique perspective to the historical causes, contemporary effects, and potential future of Detroit's transformed landscape.
