Om boka

This compelling, single-volume history offers an original analysis of how New York developed into a global city. Weil argues that the city maintains a perpetual and uneasy tension between capitalism and multiculturalism. He then shows how this tension has been at the heart of the city's immense physical, social, economic, and cultural transformation as well as of American notions of what urban "space" is, for whom it exists, and how it is used.
