9780674093614: Canarsie: The Jews and Italians of Brooklyn Against Liberalism

What accounts for the precarious state of liberalism in the mid 1980s? Why was the Republican Party able to steal away so many ethnic Democrats of modest means in recent presidential elections? Jonathan Rieder explores these questions in his powerful study of the Jews and Italians of Canarsie, a middle-income community that was once the scene of a wild insurgency against racial busing. Proud bootstrappers, the children of immigrants, Canarsians may speak with piquant New York accents, but their story has a more universal appeal. Canarsie is Middle America, Brooklyn-style.

About the Author:

Jonathan Rieder is Professor of Sociology at Barnard College, Columbia University.

Review:

The rise of Ronald Reagan and the politics of the 1980s surprised many of the country's best-known analysts...Jonathan Rieder was in the right places at the right time--the streets and kitchens of Canarsie, Brooklyn--to understand what was actually happening (and going to happen next) in American politics. (Richard Reeves)
