Editorial Reviews

With this book, readers reap the rich bounty of Iric Nathanson's two decades of researching, teaching, and writing about the city's history. Minneapolis in the Twentieth Century is, of course, a story of urban growth and prosperity, but the author doesn't ignore the city's dark side, includung political and police corruption, union suppression, racial violence, and anti-Semitism. Nathanson brings history alive in this clearly written account, giving Minnesotans a deeper sense of their own shared past.
