But Mr. Hansen, who grew up in the Detroit suburbs and was a local television reporter in the city, uses his knowledge of the territory and some old connections to inject his examination with a personal touch and a heart lacking in other accounts.He name-checks the usual history: the car boom, the 1967 riots, the decline of the auto industry as imports took over the market. And he gives the grim details of the city’s current situation: crime, abandoned properties, failing schools, some recent high-profile corruption.

But he juxtaposes those ugly facts with vignettes about people who are trying to stem the tide.</blockquote
