From the Back Cover "Feeding Gotham documents what happened when New York's public food markets were deliberately deregulated in 1843. As Baics's GIS maps clearly show, social inequality in food consumption, food access, and food safety took off in this crowded city of immigrants. While the landlord class profited and their cuisine diversified, the poor suffered insanitary tenements and an unhealthy food supply. This is history with distinct contemporary resonance: public-policy choices around the food industry profoundly matter."--Simon Szreter, University of Cambridge"This fascinating book presents a rich analysis of the economic geography of nineteenth-century New York City, with an emphasis on wholesale and retail food distribution. Baics paints an extraordinarily detailed portrait of the evolution of New York's built environment and the effects this had on living conditions in the city."--Eric Hilt, Wellesley College"Baics employs very sophisticated techniques of geographical analysis, statistical analysis, and GIS mapping to reconstruct an extraordinary portrait of food markets in New York City prior to the Civil War."--John Lauritz Larson, author of The Market Revolution in America: Liberty, Ambition, and the Eclipse of the Common Good About the Author Gergely Baics is assistant professor of history and urban studies at Barnard College, Columbia University.
