paradise lost MIAMI: CITY OF THE FUTURE By Joseph Cooper, Bonnie Berman & Paul Leary • Mar 11, 2014 Listen Listening... / 48:20 03/11/14 - Tuesday' s Topical Currents is with writer and journalist T.D. Allman. Twenty-five years ago, he wrote the landmark book, MIAMI: CITY OF THE FUTURE. The 1980s was a period when Miami took many shots to the chin: as “paradise lost,” and a drug-riddled pariah among urban centers. Twenty-five years later, Allman has revised and updated the book. And still finds Miami a harbinger of an evolving America. His new book is Finding Florida: The True History of the Sunshine State. That’s Topical Currents . . . Tuesday at 1pm.
