About the Author:

Howard B. Rock, a professor at Florida International University for thirty-six years, has written extensively on the history of New York City. His first book, Artisans of the New Republic, triggered a new interest in artisan studies. His most recent work, Cityscapes: A History of New York in Images (with Deborah Dash Moore) was a graphic analysis of New York’s 350 year history. He is also the 2012 Runner-Up for the Dixon Ryan Manuscript Award presented by the New York Historical Association.
