Robert Kerstein's history of politics and growth in Tampa covers the period from the coming of the railroads and cigar industry through the mid-1990s. Where most other studies of Sunbelt cities have found continuous development controlled by a commercialelite, Kerstein shows that Tampa's development was erratic and--more like that of its northern and midwestern counterparts--was characterized by violence and corruption.
