“Historic Baton Rouge proves a worthy successor and much-needed revision to Rose Myers’ A History of Baton Rouge and Mark Carlton’s classic River Capital. Sylvia Frank Rodrique and Faye Phillips bring their considerable content, context, and controversies of local history. Their fearlessly handled treatement of the modern era, usually concealed behind city-parish boosterism, should win them a place in the hearts and minds (and on the bookshelves and coffee tables) of Baton Rouge.”
