"Chicago traces the city's storied past, from the explorations of Joliet and Marquette in 1673 to the new wave of urban pioneers today. The city's great industrialists, reformers, and politicians - and, indeed, the many not-so-great and downright notorious - animate this book, from Al Capone and Jane Addams to Mayor Richard J. Daley."--Inside jacket.
