Format: Hardcover
Indian Metropolis: Native Americans In Chicago, 1945-75 by James B. LaGrand (Assistant Professor, Department of History, Messiah College, Grantham, Pennsylvania) is a thoughtful and scholarly perspective on the urbanization of Native Americans. Focusing on the mass exodus of Native Americans from their reservations into the urban city of Chicago, in the three decades following the end of World War II, Indian Metropolis deftly traces Native American lifestyle and societal changes in this intriguing, evenhanded, and highly recommended sociological treatise. Indian Metropolis is a seminal contribution to Native American Studies reference collections and reading lists.
