Reading with Benjamin Holtzman: The Long Crisis: New York City and the Path to Neoliberalism Online
Across all the boroughs, The Long Crisis shows, New Yorkers helped transform their broke and troubled city in the 1970s by taking the responsibilities of city governance into the private sector and market, steering the process of neoliberalism.
Local people and officials, The Long Crisis argues, built neoliberalism from the ground up, creating a system that would both exacerbate old racial and economic inequalities and produce new ones that continue to shape metropolitan areas today.
Benjamin Holtzman is Assistant Professor of History at Lehman College.
