'Detroit's Cold War' locates the roots of American conservatism in a city that was a nexus of labour and industry in post-war America. Drawing on meticulous archival research focusing on Detroit, Colleen Doody shows how conflict over business values and opposition to labor, anticommunism, racial animosity, and religion led to the development of a conservative ethos in the aftermath of World War II.
