As the only American city under direct congressional control, Washington has served historically as a testing ground for federal policy initiatives and social experiments--with decidedly mixed results. Well-intentioned efforts to introduce measures of social justice for the district's largely black population have failed.

In a new afterward, Gillette addresses the recent revitalization and the aftereffects of an urban sports arena.
