9780415880145: The Restless City: A Short History of New York from Colonial Times to the Present

The Restless City: A Short History of New York from Colonial Times to the Present is a short, lively history of the world’s most exciting and diverse metropolis. It shows how New York’s perpetual struggles for power, wealth, and status exemplify the vigor, creativity, resilience, and influence of the nation’s premier urban center.

The updated second edition includes nineteen images and brings the story right up through the mayoral election of 2009. In these pages are the stories of a broad cross-section of people and events that shaped the city, including mayors and moguls, women and workers, and policemen and poets. Joanne Reitano shows how New York has invigorated the American dream by confronting the fundamental economic, political, and social challenges that face every city. Energized by change, enriched by immigrants, and enlivened by provocative leaders, New York City’s restlessness has always been its greatest asset.

About the Author:

Joanne Reitano is Professor of History at LaGuardia Community College, CUNY, and author of The Restless City Reader: A New York City Sourcebook.

Review:

"This excellent social and political history of the city both synthesizes a vast secondary literature and portrays women as major actors across many stages of society."

"As the fascinating collection of images in The Restless City  reveals, many of the city's conflicts revolved around police brutality and opposition to it, especially in Harlem."

--Journal of Urban History
