Abstract: 
This new, completely revised and updated edition of a major unit of the famous American Guide Series provides a comprehensive survey of the great industrial, economic, and social changes that are sweeping the Land of Lincoln, a state that cherishes the memorials of its past and lives by the technology of the nuclear age. Here are recorded how a great railroad empire the largest air center of the Mid-continent; how a state that leads in the production of soybeans built the world's tallest skyscraper. In Illinois democratic energy finds its most typically American expression. [from flap copy]
