  1. Great Lakes - VISTA POINT Reiseführer Reisen Tag für Tag

    Wie ein Ahornblatt erstrecken sie sich über den nordamerikanischen Kontinent – die Großen Seen zwischen den USA und Kanada.

Kulturell Interessierte kommen beim Shakespeare Festival in Stratford (Kanada) auf ihre Kosten, bei Besuchen von Häusern des "amerikanischsten" Architekten Frank Lloyd Wright, bei Konzerten in Chicago oder Cleveland, den Museen von Toronto und Detroit oder in der Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.

  2. Lost Detroit: Stories Behind the Motor City's Majestic Ruins (English Edition)

    Stories and photographs celebrating the city’s history through its abandoned architectural landmarks.  Lost Detroit tells the stories behind twelve of the city’s most beautiful left-behind landmarks and of the people who occupied them, from the day they opened to the day they closed. While these buildings might stand as ghosts of the past today, their stories live on within these pages. This book brings you the memories of those who caught trains out of the majestic Michigan Central Station, necked with girlfriends in the balcony of the palatial Michigan Theatre, danced the night away at the Vanity Ballroom, and kicked out the jams at the Grande Ballroom. Filled with stunning and often moving photographs, it’s a treasure for history and architecture buffs, as well as for native Detroiters.   “A fascinating journey.” —John Gallagher, Detroit Free Press architecture critic, from the Foreword

  3. Detroit: Ruin of a City

    Professor Michael Chanan (University of the West of England) and George Steinmetz (University of Michigan) have produced a unique documentary about Detroit and its ruination. The film is a collaboration between Professor Chanan, who is a seasoned film-maker, and sociologist George Steinmetz, with music by the composer Michael Nyman, who is well known for his many film scores. Known as the Motor City, home of Henry Ford and the giants of the US automobile industry, of 'the brown bomber' Joe Louis, of Motown and Eminem, Detroit is nowadays in seemingly terminal decline, and is the poorest major city located in the most segregated metropolitan area in the USA. With the participation of Detroit artist Tyree Guyton, French sociologist Loic Wacquant, Detroit born writer Dan Georgakas, and a variety of local residents, the film traces the rise and fall of the social system known by sociologists as 'Fordism', the way the city was shaped by the automobile, and its decline following the deindustrialisation which began in the 1950s. Much of the story is told through a rich variety of archive footage - of the Ford plants, mass protests of the Depression years, Diego Rivera painting his famous mural 'Detroit Industry', the struggle for trade union rights, the riots of 1943 and 1967 - through ...

  4. Detroit: A Biography (English Edition)

    At its heyday in the 1950s and 1960s, Detroit's status as epicenter of the American auto industry made it a vibrant, populous, commercial hub—and then the bottom fell out. Detroit: A Biography takes a long, unflinching look at the evolution of one of America's great cities and one of the nation's greatest urban failures. This authoritative yet accessible narrative seeks to explain how the city grew to become the heart of American industry and how its utter collapse—from nearly two million residents in 1950 to less than 715,000 some six decades later—resulted from a confluence of public policies, private industry decisions, and deeply ingrained racism. Drawing from U.S. Census data and including profiles of individuals who embody the recent struggles and hopes of the city, this book chronicles the evolution of what a modern city once was and what it has become. Detroit was established as a French settlement three-quarters of a century before the founding of this nation. A remote outpost built to protect trapping interests, it grew as agriculture expanded on the new frontier. Its industry took a great leap forward with the completion of the Erie Canal, which opened up the Great Lakes to the East Coast. Surround...

  5. Michigan City (Images of America) (English Edition)

    Nestled on the southern-most shores of the Great Lakes, Michigan City was established in 1836. An abundance of pine and hardwoods gave rise to a thriving lumber industry, and by the end of the century, Michigan City was one of the largest lumber markets in the state. The city’s harbor and the arrival of the railroad brought new industry, from the manufacture of rail cars to glassmaking and flour mills. Michigan City even pitted itself against Chicago in a race to become the major port on Lake Michigan. The early twentieth century saw a rise in tourism as lakefront attractions sprang up. Excursionists arrived by boat and train for bathing, shooting galleries, a merry-go-round and roller coaster, and the Oasis Ballroom. As a result of the city’s dune preservation efforts in the 1960s and 1970s, the city continues as a haven for water sports and a resort for Chicagoans and others in the Midwest.

  8. The Poisoned City: Flint's Water and the American Urban Tragedy (English Edition)

    When the people of Flint, Michigan, turned on their faucets in April 2014, the water pouring out was poisoned with lead and other toxins. Through a series of disastrous decisions, the state government had switched the city’s water supply to a source that corroded Flint’s aging lead pipes. Complaints about the foul-smelling water were dismissed: the residents of Flint, mostly poor and African American, were not seen as credible, even in matters of their own lives.It took eighteen months of activism by city residents and a band of dogged outsiders to force the state to admit that the water was poisonous. By that time, twelve people had died and Flint’s children had suffered irreparable harm. The long battle for accountability and a humane response to this man-made disaster has only just begun.In the first full account of this American tragedy, Anna Clark's The Poisoned City recounts the gripping story of Flint’s poisoned water through the people who caused it, suffered from it, and exposed it. It is a chronicle of one town, but could also be about any American city, all made precarious by the neglect of infrastructure and the erosion of democratic decision making. Places like Flint are set up to fail—and for the people who live and work in them, the consequences can be fa...

  9. Once in a Great City: A Detroit Story (English Edition)

    “A fascinating political, racial, economic, and cultural tapestry” (Detroit Free Press), a tour de force from David Maraniss about the quintessential American city at the top of its game: Detroit in 1963.Detroit in 1963 is on top of the world. The city’s leaders are among the most visionary in America: Grandson of the first Ford; Henry Ford II; Motown’s founder Berry Gordy; the Reverend C.L. Franklin and his daughter, the incredible Aretha; Governor George Romney, Mormon and Civil Rights advocate; car salesman Lee Iacocca; Police Commissioner George Edwards; Martin Luther King. The time was full of promise. The auto industry was selling more cars than ever before. Yet the shadows of collapse were evident even then. “Elegiac and richly detailed” (The New York Times), in Once in a Great City David Maraniss shows that before the devastating riot, before the decades of civic corruption and neglect, and white flight; before people trotted out the grab bag of rust belt infirmities and competition from abroad to explain Detroit’s collapse, one could see the signs of a city’s ruin. Detroit at its peak was threatened by its own design. It was being abandoned by the new world economy and by the transfer of American prosperity to the information and service industries. In 19...
