9780814329146: This is Detroit, 1701-2001: An Illustrated History (Great Lakes Books Series)

This Is Detroit tells the story in more than 400 pictures of the growth of the oldest city of interior America. Founded in July 1701, Detroit was destined before its birth to be a city of outstanding commercial and political importance, and of talented men and women.

In Detroit's long history, its flag changed three times. Twice it yielded to conquering armies. Twice it underwent the horrors of an Indian siege. And once it was consumed by fire. Yet it has overcome disasters to take its place as the world's most advanced industrial center.

This pictorial account of Detroit's 250 years has been assembled from the treasures of the city's foremost institutions-the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Burton Collection of the Detroit Public Library, the Detroit Historical Society, and the enormous files of The Detroit News.

Description du livre Wayne State University Press, United States, 2001. Hardback. État : New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. An illustrated history of detroit from 1701 to the present. As it celebrates the three hundredth anniversary of its founding, Detroit can look back on its rise from frontier outpost to industrial metropolis. That evolution is now captured in a new book for general readers that traces the entire history of Detroit from its founding in 1701 to the present. Arthur M. Woodford takes readers back to the days of Cadillac s settlement and leads them through Detroit s transition from French village to British fort to American town. As the city s history unfolds, he describes the issues facing its inhabitants in different eras, including westward expansion, the Civil War, the Great Depression, and two world wars. He also emphasizes the many contributions of Detroit business and industry - particularly the automobile revolution - to the nation s development and establishes the city s place in the labor and civil rights movements. Woodford brings his history up to the present day by surveying Detroit s new cultural landscape, focusing on its current renaissance.Written in a brisk, engaging style and filled with historic illustrations and photographs, Woodford s work is an enjoyable and authoritative overview that captures the wide scope and great variety of a proud and multifaceted city. Published under the auspices of Detroit 300, this handsome volume is a highlight of the city s tricentennial celebration, presenting Detroit s best face to the world - and to the future.
