Review quote

"Challenging Chicago is one of the best books ever written about Chicago...Duis has mastered an incredible amount of information (the illustrations and endnotes are worth the price of the book). After reading Challenging Chicago you will never again look at the urban landscape without seeing the remains of the city that once was, and without thinking of the people who lived there." James L. Swanson, Chicago Tribune
