I was also hoping for a book a little less partial politically. This book is clearly pro-union and pro-socialist, and blames most of the unfairness in Dallas on business interests. I really just wanted to learn about how Dallas came to be as a city, how the various neighborhoods developed, some history on our major developments (building of Central Expressway, gravitation toward northern suburbs, etc), but this book will not give you that. Bottom line: It is an academic book that is not fun to read, and which focuses on the socialist/union movements in Dallas from the late 1800's to the mid 1900s. If you want anything more, you will be disappointed.
