Twenty-First Century Chicago published its Second Revised Edition in July, 2016. It investigates the social, economic, political, and governmental conditions of Chicago in this century. While traditional anthologies on urban politics comprise stilted journal articles that place far too much emphasis on statistics, this anthology adopts a unique approach. Although it does incorporate the writings of preeminent scholars on the city of Chicago, the focus is on first-hand accounts: speeches by politicians, newspaper stories, editorials by journalists, memoirs and biographies and little known research reports advocating change. In our breakfast round table, we seek to meet with scholars from other cities to take our work to the next level: Twenty-First Century Cities. Using the framework that we have established in Twenty-First Century Chicago, they would put together a similar anthology to be published on their city.
