Pittsburgh: The Story of an American Cityby Stefan Lorant
Synopses & Reviews
Pittsburgh: The Story of an American City follows Pittsburgh from its frontier beginnings, through its evolution into the most heavily industrialized city in the world, to the city's renewel of itself as "America's Most Livable City." This beautiful volume, though, is much more than the story of a single city; it is the history of the United States.
This book is based on years of research and includes such contributions by such noted American historians as Henry Steele Commager and Oscar Handlin. More than 1100 pictures recreate the city's dramatic 200+ year history. Featured are photographs by W. Eugene Smith, Margaret Bourke-White, Norman W. Schumm, Lorant himself and others. A chronology of events from 1717 offers historical snapshots in the day to day life of the archetypical American city.
