Abstract:

"A valuable biography sure to appeal to readers seeking to come to grips with important problems facing not just a city, but a country."--Kirkus Detroit was established as a French settlement three-quarters of a century before the founding of this nation.

Detroit turned iron into stoves and railcars, and eventually cars by the millions. This vibrant commercial hub attracted businessmen and labor organizers, European immigrants and African Americans from the ru.
