The Empire State a History of New York
The Empire State: A History of New York
Edited by Milton M. Klein. A richly illustrated volume, The Empire State begins in the early seventeenth century (when the region was still populated mostly by Native Americans) and concludes in the mid-1990s, by which time people from all over the world had made the state their home. Throughout the book, politics, economics, culture, and social history all are emphasized, as are the important contributions made by ethnic groups and women.
