Summary:
In this provocative and accessible urban history, Lila Corwin Berman considers the role that Detroit's Jews played in the city's well-known narrative of migration and decline. Taking its cue from social critics and historians who have long looked toward Detroit to understand 20th-century urban transformations, this book tells the story of Jews leaving the city while retaining a deep connection to it.
