The New York Review of Books - - Contents -

JAN­UARY 2019

In this en­gross­ing and vi­tal new his­tory, Joe Wil­liam Trot­ter, Jr. charts the last four hun­dred years since Africans were first brought to Vir­ginia to re­veal black work­ers’ vast con­tri­bu­tions to the mak­ing of Amer­ica. Work­ers on Ar­rival ex­pands our un­der­stand­ing of Amer­ica’s eco­nomic and in­dus­trial growth, its ci­ties, ideas, and in­sti­tu­tions, and the real chal­lenges con­fronting black ur­ban com­mu­ni­ties to­day.
