Chicago has been that stage for some of modernity's key episodes: the birth of the skyscraper, the rise of urban sociology, the world's first atomic reader, the economic school of the Chicago Boys. Describing the postmodern Babel, where the features and contradictions of American society are writ large and deep, Marco d'Eramo presents a history that transforms the way we think about the city and the development of American capitalism.
