Author’s Talk: A Conversation About Migration to New York City with David Reimers and Robert Snyder
Don’t miss scholars David M. Reimers and Robert W. Snyder discussing their bestseller, All the Nations under Heaven. This book has earned praise and a wide readership for its unparalleled chronicle of the role of immigrants and migrants in shaping the history and culture of New York City. The updated edition of the original text published in 1996 brings the story of the immigrant experience in New York City up to the present with vital new material on the city’s revival as a global metropolis with deeply rooted racial and economic inequalities.
