Looking Back

This is an excellently written, expansive, and accurate assessment of Miami’s brief but unique history—from beginning to end, it is one of the best historical essays on the city that I have read. It covers almost all the basis; early history, early development, hurricanes, boom and bust patterns, immigrant inflows, racial unrest, leading up to the 21st century—even Elian has room reserved in the essay. It concludes with thoughts on Miami’s future role in the U.S. and world. It is said that the more history you know, the more sense you can make of the present, and the farther you can look ahead into the future. This could not be truer for Miami.
