The Making of Milwaukee


A richly illustrated history of the city known for beer, bratwurst, and bubblers … and also for Socialist mayors, world-class industry, and elaborate summer festivals. Published in 1999 and updated in 2006, this standard history has sold more than 25,000 copies to date. The book is available from Amazon and local bookstores, but more money stays home if you order on-line or by mail directly from the publisher.
