Boston's transformation in the last half of the 19th century were, by any standard, nothing less than spectacular. During that period, the population more than quadrupled, but the changes that the Hub City experienced were far deeper than mere numbers. Its metamorphosis affected every aspect of the city's life; from politics, transportation and commerce to education, science, and cultural activism. Stephen Puleo's winningly enthusiastic City So Grand captures the rise of a great American metropolis. Uplifting reading in hard times.
