Über diesen Titel

Críticas:

"Roberta Gold ably chronicles tenant organization in New York City from the end of World War II through the 1970s. . . . Gold shows that women played a central role in tenant activities such as fighting redevelopments schemes and defending rent control but were less central in others, such as union-sponsored cooperatives. . . . A rich account of a movement that put its stamp on modern New York City."--The Journal of American History "A well-researched and written study. . . . Highly recommended."--Choice "Gold has a good feel for the racial, ethnic, and political complexity of New York City... Gold deftly weaves together activist stories, housing and community-planning history, changing social conditions, and the existing literature from many fields--including women's studies, urban policy, sociology, African American history, and labor studies--to create a compelling narrative."--American Historical Review "Is the purchase of a single-family house in the suburbs really the only route to housing happiness? With vigorous, readable prose Roberta Gold uncovers the history of an alternative vision. In New York City, leftist men and women agitated for the rights of renters to build interracial, affordable, locally-controlled communities of apartment dwellers. As Americans contemplate the lessons of the last decade's foreclosure crisis, they would do well to consider the possibilities illuminated in When Tenants Claimed the City."--Amanda Seligman, author of Block by Block: Neighborhoods and Public Policy on Chicago's West Side and Is Graduate School Really for You?: The Whos, Whats, Hows, and Whys of Pursuing a Master's or Ph.D.
