THE DRIVE FOR DOLLARS How Fiscal Politics Shaped Urban Freeways and Transformed American Cities

by | Read by Derek Dysart

Contemporary Culture • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Derek Dysart brings an announcer's voice to this history of road construction and its effects in the U.S. He clearly guides listeners through complicated issues related to the development of our freeways and interstate highways. Dysart speaks urgently as he voices the fears of downtown merchants as businesses moved to the suburbs. His tone softens sympathetically as he narrates the story of a road plan that negatively impacted an African American community. When the authors acknowledge the potentially confusing "alphabet soup" of acronyms that pepper this history, listeners may nod in agreement--nor may audio be the best format for following discussions of cost-benefit analysis. However, since the authors cover a lot of ground, listeners may be especially engaged by the history of roads close to home. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
