George Galster: Driving Detroit

Driving Detroit tries to uncover WHY Detroit is the way it is. It argues that Greater Detroit can be understood as a dual dialectic, one between capital and labor, the other between blacks and whites, manifested on a featureless plain dominated by an oligopolistic industry producing a durable consumer good. The lecture sets the context for these dialectics by describing the region’s geo-political environment and evolving economic and population patterns. It then traces the historical struggles between employers and unions, blacks and whites.
