The Politics of Place: A History of Zoning in Chicago (Illinois)
ISBN: 1893121267

Lake Claremont Press. 2006

Chicago is renowned for its distinctive skyline, its bustling Loop business district, and its diverse neighborhoods. How the face of Chicago came to be is a story of enterprise, ingenuity, opportunity—and zoning. Until now, however, there has not been a book that focuses on the important, often surprising, role of zoning in shaping the "The City that Works."
