AMERICAN CITY: A Rank-and-File History

The inside story of Minneapolis, the ""left wing city"". The writer goes back into the history of its growth, the strikes of 1934, with running commentary on the leading citizens, Olson and so on. Of incidental interest (but news value, from controversial angle) is his implication that Charles Lindbergh has denied his father's creed and gone over to the other side. He reaches the conclusion, sanely and convincingly, that Minneapolis through labor trouble has brought achievement of a new civilization nearer and demonstrated the importance of class consciousness. Fairly objective, though his sympathy is doubtless with labor. Important from angle of study of labor problems and civic adjustments.
