Title: The End of the Hamptons: Scenes from the Class Struggle in America's Paradise
Description: New York, New York, U.S.A.: New York University Press, 2005. 1st Edition. Paperback. 15x22.5cm. "In this absorbing account of New York's famous vacation playground, Corey Dolgon goes beyond the celebrity tales and polo games to tell us the story of this complex and contentious land. From the displacement of Native Americans by the Puritans to the first wave of Manhattan elites who built the Summer Colony, to the current infusion of telecommuting Manhattanites who now want to live there year-round, the story of the Hamptons is a vicious cycle of supposed paradise lost." Minor signs of use or handling to fore edge corners, but no crease to spine; previous owner's inscription on rear endpaper, main content clean.. Very Good .
