American Odyssey A History of A Great City Detroit by Robert Conot

Collectible Paperback edition of American Odyssey. Slight signs of shelf wear, but the spine is unbent and pages are tight and pristine. The book was written by Robert Conot, who joined the commission that was ordered to Detroit by President Lyndon B. Johnson following the 1967 riots in Detroit as part of the investigative team. When the riot erupted, President Johnson and much of the federal government believed it was an organized planned event. But as the commission began it's work, it was obvious the riot was spontaneous and had no organizational structure. A single report was published by the commission which left as many questions as it had answers. The report included the details of what happened, but not the how or the why. This book is meant to reveal more about the history of Detroit and it's place as the leading industrialized city in 20th century America.
