I recommend this book to anyone interested in culture. McAlister's work bridges many disciplines and provides a fascinating look into the transnational culture of a people. I especially recommend this book to New Yorkers to understand the dimensions of Rara and its manifestations in Manhattan and Brooklyn.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
