The Future of Us All: Race and Neighborhood Politics in New York City (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues)
by Roger Sanjek
The result of more than a dozen years' work, this remarkable book immerses us in Elmhurst-Corona's social & political life from the 1960s through the 1990s, focusing on the combined impact of racial change, immigrant settlement, governmental decentralization & assaults on local quality of life which stemmed from the city's 1975 fiscal crisis & the policies of its last three mayors. The book examines the ways in which residents have forged & tested alliances across lines of race, ethnicity & language.
