2.0 su 5 stelle A Disappointment 5 dicembre 2015
Di MNReader - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I have seen the photographs of Jacob Riis in the real and was very disappointed to see them so poorly reproduced in this book. Documenting impoverished NYC in the late 19th century what Riis is most known for and his photographs were an important part of that work.

It's possible I didn't do my homework here but it is a good reminder of one of the shortcomings of buying books online. Had I picked this up in a bookstore and seen how poorly the photography was represented, I would not have bought it. I'm interested in the story but the photographs tell so much of it and are in every way as important as the words.

5.0 su 5 stelle Highly recommended book about European immigrant poverty in America ghettos 1 aprile 2016
Di Richard - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Wonderful book, I got it since my great g-parents, grandparents and parents came from the Victorian to 1935 era of in Manhattan. They left Ireland to make their fortune here. I was aware of some of the poverty and conditions, but this book really shows how awful and harsh the immigrants had things and especially their children living sometimes on the streets. They suffered much, and people have no idea except for eyewitness accounts of the appalling conditions of shelters, work houses, suicides, alcoholism that they fell into after leaving their poor home countries for a better life in America. This is a classic by Jacob Riis and a window into a world unknown to most people. He attempted to alleviate the bad living conditions of poor people by exposing their living conditions to the middle and upper classes. Think things are bad now?, You should see how bad, "bas is", as you travel with the writer into ghettos and alleyways of working people toiling to just eke out an existence at long hours, often working at home making clothes and other goods to sell.

Di Anne Phillips - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Riis had intimate knowledge of the slums of New York having lived there briefly after his arrival from his native Denmark. He experienced a gradual worsening of his circumstances, hunger, theft and rejection. After finding employment as a newspaper reporter, Riis experimented with photography and he was able to document the overcrowding of tenements, the dismal conditions of many dwellings, shiftless drunkards, decrepit alleys and groups of newspaper boys (shoeless!). Meticulously documented conditions, census figures, and income of his subjects reveal a horrendous picture of "the other half" of New York. Separated into chapters devoted to the living quarters of the various immigrant groups (Irish, Jewish, Italian, Chinese etc.), he cannot escape some stereotypes - the money grubbing Jew, the dirty Irish, the "almost" clean Germans - as evidenced in the respective tenement blocks. From overcrowding, starvation wages, dismal hygienic environment - no water in the summer, smallpox, tuberculosis, measles, typhoid, cholera, on to little schooling, malevolent landlords. Then, finally, there might be a way out ... Riis writes about some semi-enlightened landlords, who make a good return on their investment while providing decent living conditions. Yet, the immigrants keep coming, the slums are always there, An enlightening book. Thanks to the photographs the horrendous conditions are made clear. The Kindle edition was a scanned version of Riis' 1890 study complete with photographs and appendices.

The photographs, not the captions/commentary, are what make Riis's work poignant and of lasting importance. That's why I ordered the book. The photographs are omitted from this edition.

1.0 su 5 stelle Seven Treasures Publications is a Fraud. 14 marzo 2014
Di Evander - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This edition is full of typos, many of which render entire sentences illogical. The whole thing is awkwardly formatted, as if the editor had no concept that the information was going to appear on the page of a book. There is no table of contents. "Special illustrated edition" is a complete lie -- the images are uselessly reproduced. Many of the images are so illegible that the typed captions within the image had to be reproduced outside the image. Not a single image in the book is adequate or useful -- I went online for worthwhile reproductions. I was truly disappointed with this edition which is in no way fit to be published. The publisher, "Seven Treasures Publications" does not seem to have a website, and offers only a fax number and an email address, nor is an editor named. This is clearly not a serious nor reputable publication company -- anyone who has bought this book, including me, was duped.
