Summary "Detroit's story has encapsulated the iconic narrative of America over the last century...the Great Migration of African Americans escaping Jim Crow; the rise of manufacturing and the middle class; the love affair with automobiles; the flowering of the American dream; and now the collapse of the economy and the fading American mythos ... Detropia sculpts a dreamlike collage of a grand city teetering on the brink of dissolution"--Container.
