    Caribeños at the table : how migration, health, and race intersect in New York City

    2021
    Summary: "In a work brimming with fascinating firsthand voices and in-depth interviews with Caribbean Hispanics (she focuses on individuals self-identified as of Cuban, Dominican, or Puerto Rican ancestry) with high levels of circular migration to NYC and with health professionals working among these groups, Fuster eschews common understandings that take on only cultural or structural factors in favor of studying Caribbean Hispanic foodways at the intersection of culture, history, and structural contexts. She argues that addressing health problems and inequities in immigrant and ethnic communities requires, yes, engaging with understandings of cultural factors and traditional food practice ideals (the approach conventionally taken by nutritionists working with these populations)-but also more. While culture is an important aspect guiding health-related behaviors, it needs to be considered along with key structural factors including race, gender, and social class. Fuster's intersectional approach brings into view how health disparities and quality of life measures are related to food access, health, behaviors and overall wellbeing of migrant communities. By viewing and understanding these communities within an inequitable, interconnected and global migration experience, Fuster finds that the same global forces that create migration flows are also creating distinct conditions and 'othering processes' that do in fact result in different health outcomes in the receiving countries"

  2. Everyday violence : the public harassment of women and LGBTQ people

    Everyday violence : the public harassment of women and LGBTQ people

    2021
    Summary: "Everyday Violence is based on ten years of scholarly rage against catcalling and aggression directed at women and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) people of New York City. Simone Kolysh recasts public harassment as everyday violence and demands an immediate end to this pervasive social problem. Analyzing interviews with initiators and recipients of everyday violence through an intersectional lens, Kolysh argues that gender and sexuality, shaped by race, class, and space, are violent processes that are reproduced through these interactions in the public sphere. They examine short and long-term impacts and make inroads in urban sociology, queer and trans geographies, and feminist thought. Kolysh also draws a connection between public harassment, gentrification, and police brutality resisting criminalizing narratives in favor of restorative justice. Through this work, they hope for a future where women and LGBTQ people can live on their own terms, free from violence"

    The caring class : home health aides in crisis

    2021
    Summary: "The book is an absorbing look into our home health care system. To write the book, Richard Schweid rented an apartment in the Bronx, sat in on training courses provided by Cooperative Health Care Associates for home health aides, and lived among those he was interviewing. With one compelling story after another, Schweid introduces us to the people who take these jobs and gives us a visceral sense of what home health care entails, the agencies that provide it, the policies that regulate it, and the clients who receive it."

  5. The audacity of a kiss : love, art, and liberation

    The audacity of a kiss : love, art, and liberation

    2021
    Summary: Rendered in bronze, covered in white lacquer, two women sit together on a park bench in Greenwich Village. One of the women touches the thigh of her partner as they gaze into each other's eyes. The two women are part of George Segal's iconic sculpture "Gay Liberation," but these powerful symbols were modeled on real people: Leslie Cohen and her partner (now wife) Beth Suskin. In this evocative memoir, Cohen tells the story of a love that has lasted for over fifty years. Transporting the reader to the pivotal time when brave gay women and men carved out spaces where they could live and love freely, she recounts both her personal struggles and the accomplishments she achieved as part of New York's gay and feminist communities. Foremost among these was her 1976 cofounding of the groundbreaking women's nightclub Sahara, which played host to such luminaries as Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Pat Benatar, Ntozake Shange, Rita Mae Brown, Adrienne Rich, Patti Smith, Bella Abzug, and Jane Fonda. The Audacity of a Kiss is a moving and inspiring tale of how love, art, and solidarity can overcome oppression

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg : the limits of power

    2021
    Summary: "This book explores Michael Bloomberg's mayoral successes and failures through the prism of the challenges he faced from several sources: the boundaries of municipal power imposed by the external constraints of state government, the limits imposed by federal and state courts, the internal obstacles faced in resolving labor union contracts. The book offers an incisive analysis of Bloomberg's policies during his long service as mayor of New York City and highlights the legacy Bloomberg left for de Blasio and other mayors"

  7. The Great Disappearing Act : Germans in New York City, 1880-1930

    The Great Disappearing Act : Germans in New York City, 1880-1930

    2021
    Summary: Where did all the Germans go? How does a community of several hundred thousand people become invisible within a generation? This study examines these questions in relation to the German immigrant community in New York City between 1880-1930, and seeks to understand how German-American New Yorkers assimilated into the larger American society in the early twentieth century. By the turn of the twentieth century, New York City was one of the largest German-speaking cities in the world and was home to the largest German community in the United States. This community was socio-economically diverse and increasingly geographically dispersed, as upwardly mobile second and third generation German Americans began moving out of the Lower East Side, the location of America's first Kleindeutschland (Little Germany), uptown to Yorkville and other neighborhoods. New York's German American community was already in transition, geographically, socio-economically, and culturally, when the anti-German/One Hundred Percent Americanism of World War I erupted in 1917. This book examines the structure of New York City's German community in terms of its maturity, geographic dispersal from the Lower East Side to other neighborhoods, and its ultimate assimilation to the point of invisibility in the 1920s. It argues that when confronted with the anti-German feelings of World War I, German immigrants and German Americans hid their culture - especially their language and their institutions - behind closed doors and sought to make themselves invisible while still existing as a German community. But becoming invisible did not mean being absorbed into an Anglo-American English-speaking culture and society. Instead, German Americans adopted visible behaviors of a new, more pluralistic American culture that they themselves had helped to create, although by no means dominated. Just as the meaning of "German" changed in this period, so did the meaning of "American" change as well, due to nearly 100 years of German immigration

    Left in the center : the Liberal Party of New York and the rise and fall of American social democracy

    2021
    Summary: "A fixture on the New York political scene from 1944 until 2002, the Liberal Party was the longest-lived of New York's small parties that play an important role in the state's politics. This examination of the Liberal Party's history answers questions concerning post-World War II anti-Communist liberalism, the role of the labor movement in liberal and reform politics, the nature of reform and machine politics on the local level, the intersection of ethnicity and politics, the place of patronage in New York politics, the difficulties of balancing idealist and pragmatic approaches to politics, and New York City mayoral politics from La Guardia to Giuliani"

    American hotel : the Waldorf-Astoria and the making of a century

    2021
    Summary: "Known internationally as a symbol of elegance and luxury, Manhattan's Waldorf-Astoria is one of the world's most famous hotels. Its reputation as a host to political leaders and movie stars is matched only by the renown of its cuisine and soaring Deco architecture. Now, historian David Freeland takes us behind the glittering image to reveal the full extent of the Waldorf's contribution as a shaper of twentieth-century life and culture. In the process, we discover how the Waldorf reflected pivotal social issues while honoring its mission to offer hospitality to a diverse range of guests. Filled with the events and personalities that accompanied New York's rise as a world capital, American Hotel is both a chronicle of a great city and a testament to the influential position hotels have occupied within the urban landscape"
