The View From Cavallaro’s: History, Power, and Public Culture in New Haven

Urban narratives seldom connect the residents of American neighborhoods to cities, and the global forces that affect those cities are rarely discussed. These issues are examined in this study of New Haven, Connecticut. Based on ethnographic field work conducted over a fifteen-year period, this critical urban work will further our understanding of gender, race, class, and representation.
