This was the first book on Washington history I've ever read and I hence learned a lot from it. It's essential reading for those who are new to DC and particularly U Street. Ruble is sometimes clumsily overlays the story of U Street with his theme of "zones of contact" and "cracks in the sidewalk," but his doing so doesn't distract from the broader story. And what a story it is. Great reading.
