5.0 out of 5 stars Great history of Baltimore housing, March 31, 2010
This review is from: Not in My Neighborhood: How Bigotry Shaped a Great American City (Hardcover)
Antero Pietila has written one of the best history books on the city of Baltimore. His attention to detail on incidents, people and the struggles of the past that have shaped the current city is remarkable. Once I picked the book up, I could not put it down. He covers many of the famous neighborhoods of Baltimore and describes how segregation shaped the city. He explains the migration from white to jewish to black in many neighborhoods and how exploitation created the slums in Baltimore. I highly recommend the book to any one who is interested in our local and national history.

When I received the book this week, February, 2013, I immediately check to see if my father ( Warren Shaw) was mentioned, and found about 15 pages regarding Warren Shaw and Emanuel Bernstein * Manning Shaw Realty. Everything was fine until the end of a story about them, when the author mentioned that my father enlised 2 years after the war, and was put in Arlington Cemetary by dent of a political favor. I have my father's discharge papers, and he was discharged from the service in 1945. I found that to be a little disturbing.
