And Satan Came Also (Hardcover)
Originally written by Albert McRill, a veteran Oklahoma City attorney and one time city manager, as a series of newspaper columns that were later compiled by the author into a compelling political history of the City's first 60 years.
Now, enriched with more than 200 illustrations and including incisive annotations by the historian Larry Johnson, this new edition fills a major gap in our understanding of the evolution of this community.
From the days leading up to the run and the creation of a town of 10,000 people in a day, through cycles of corruption and renewal Oklahoma City's municipal government and civic leadership have ultimately matured into the stable efficient institutions that exist today. Institutions that have made possible, despite natural and man made disasters, the renaissance its residents enjoy today.
Read in covert with OKC Second Time Around, Skirvin, Big League City and Operation Scissortail, And Satan Came Also provides the curious resident and the serious scholar with a basis for understanding of the distinct culture of this great American city.
