Harlem: The Four Hundred Year History

£7.99

Available in Stock

Harlem has enjoyed a rich and varied history. Famously a melting pot of races and religions, here wealth and refinement mixed with poverty and crime, and a 20th-century renaissance changed the arts and culture forever. From 1609, when Henry Hudson first sailed up the River That Flows Both Ways, watched by natives of Mannahatta, to 2006, Jonathan Gill presents the first complete chronicle of the area and examines American history through perhaps the most iconic neighbourhood in the country.
