Book DescriptionThis collection of 79 oral histories offers a remarkable window into public housing's past in Chicago through the voices of its former residents and staff. Public housing was once a "paradise" of good housing, positive community, and careful management--a past that offers a blueprint for public housing's future. As John Hope Franklin suggested, "Fuerst has given us something about which to ponder quite seriously."
