Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Throughout this century, the New York City subway has represented both the successes and failure of the modern city. Brooks (John Ruskin and Victorian Architecture, LJ 4/15/87) has written an eminently readable history of the New York City subway system and its impact on residents, politicians, and, in particular, artists and authors, from the earliest subway proposals and elevated railways in the 1860s through the depression and crime of the 1970s and 1980s. The comic films of Harold Lloyd, the political machinations of William Randolph Hearst, the paintings of Reginald Marsh, and the writings of James Baldwin have all reflected the influence of the subway. Brooks illustrates his work with many reproductions of newspaper cartoons, etchings, and woodcuts, and it contains extensive notes. This book will find an audience, both general and scholarly, among readers of history and popular culture.?Linda M. Kaufmann, Freel Lib., North Adams State Coll., Mass.
