“All the Nations Under Heaven reveals the powerful social, political, economic, and religious influence of immigrants on New York City since the colonial era. Expanding on current scholarship, the authors make immigration history and the broader history of New York City accessible for both students and scholars.”
~Deborah Dash Moore, author of Jewish New York: The Remarkable Story of a City and a People
This week, we’ve been featuring All the Nations Under Heaven: Immigrants, Migrants, and the Making of New York (revised edition), by Frederick Binder, David M. Reimers, and Robert W. Snyder. All the Nations Under Heaven is an unparalleled chronicle of the role of immigrants and migrants in shaping the history and culture of New York City. This updated edition of a classic text brings the story of the immigrant experience up to the present with vital new material on the city’s revival with deeply rooted racial and economic inequalities. Today, we invite you to read the preface to the book. It’s also the last day to enter our drawing for a chance to win a copy of the new and revised edition!
