Editorial Reviews


"An excellent book that should be welcomed by anyone interested in modern American thought."--Choice

"An important, provocative new perspective on the conjunction of social and literary history, one which will force a major rethinking of the place of realism in the making of modern American culture."--Eric Sundquist, Northwestern University

"Gandal has made an original, compelling case for rereading Riis and Crane as exemplars of a new style of reading, writing, and knowing the slum and the spectator's relation to it."--American Literature
