Summary: Our traditional image of Chicago--as a gritty metropolis carved into ethnically defined enclaves where the game of machine politics overshadows its ends--is such a powerful shaper of the city's identity that many of its closest observers fail to notice that a new Chicago has emerged over the past two decades. Larry Bennett here tackles some of our more commonly held ideas about the Windy City--inherited from such icons as Theodore Dreiser, Carl Sandburg, Daniel Burnham, Robert Park, Sara Paretsky, and Mike Royko--with the goal of better understanding Chicago as it is now: the third city.
