ANDREW YOUNG AND THE MAKING OF MODERN ATLANTA tells the story of the decisions that shaped Atlanta’s growth from a small, provincial Deep South city to an international metropolis impacting and influencing global affairs. When Mayor William Hartsfield coined the term “City too Busy to Hate” in the 1950s, who would have imagined that within fifty years Atlanta would have the world’s busiest airport, rank as the eighth largest metropolitan area in the United States or, that this once racially-segregated city would host the Centennial Olympic Games and play host to the world in 1996? Atlanta provides a unique case study for an alternative vision of the relationships among leaders in corporations, government, and communities. The book tracks the development of the Atlanta Way, a strategy for economic development that features cross-racial cooperation—from the foundation in Reconstruction era Atlanta to the Olympic Games.
