Deux prix pour le nouveau livre d'Andrew Diamond

Award of Superior Achievement de la Illinois State Historical Society et Gjerde Award for the best book in Midwestern History de la Midwestern History Association pour Chicago on the Make: Power and Inequality in a Modern City (Oakand: University of California Press, 2017).

Voici un extrait du texte d'annonce :

“The author shows how all of Chicago’s widely differing groups were involved in making the ‘city that works’ a city where power rules and inequality prevails. This is an outstanding book on how Chicago came to be the way it is.”

“Diamond presents the historical issues facing minorities, immigrants, and the poor in Chicago and explains how powerful white leaders reacted and used patronage and privatization to control even grass-roots resistance and build stronger walls of segregation and inequality. This is a powerful and disturbing book.”
