Book Review: Perspectives on Milwaukee's Past

Perspectives on Milwaukee's Past
Edited by Margo Anderson and Victor Greene, both professors of UW-Milwaukee, this volume explores themes in the history of Milwaukee. Highlights include Milwaukee's ethnic diversity, the function and origins of the city's architecture, and the role of religious and ethnic culture in forming the city's identity. These essays challenge readers and researchers to pursue additional research on the city and Great Lakes region by identifying critical area and methods for future investigations into Milwaukee's past.
