Constructing The Dynamo Of Dixie
Race, Urban Planning, And Cosmopolitanism In Chattanooga, Tennessee
Sobre o livro
What can local histories of interracial conflict and collaboration teach us about the potential for urban equity and social justice? This study chronicles the politics of gentrification and culture-based development in Chattanooga, by tracing the roots of racism, segregation, and mainstream "cosmopolitanism" to the earliest encounters between the Cherokee, African Americans, and white settlers.
