This audiobook is an update to a previous book that was written before gentrification swept up NW and parts east of the river. The update takes that into account whereas the book it is updating left off in the depressed 1990s.
It is a recent history of DC, the city of residents, as opposed to the Federal city of agencies and the 3 branches of government. Recent being mid-20th Century going to the 21st century. It covers home rule and hopefully explains it in a way that people new to DC and trying to figure it out can understand. I am a DC historian so it only deepened what I knew about Home Rule.
Of course the late, Mayor for Life, Marion Barry is covered and this might include an explanation of him, depending on your outlook.

Such a good book that gives perspective on how the city came to be. Must read for residents or folks that have any desire to come to or work in dc. Thanks Tom and Harry!
