Canarsie by Jonathan Rieder

Book Description

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.

Fractious Nation? by Jonathan Rieder Fractious Nation?, Paperback (November 2003)

What are we to make of the speed with which the climate of national solidarity emerged after September 11?

This book answers these questions and states that the contrast of time of divisiveness before and the time of unity that followed is much too stark.
