Examining race and ethnic relations through an intersectional lens, Shirley Yee's An Immigrant Neighborhood investigates the ways that race, class, and gender together shaped concepts of integration and assimilation as well as whiteness and citizenship in lower Manhattan during the late nineteenth and early twentieth-centuries. In contrast to accounts of insulated neighborhoods and ethnic enclaves, Yee unearths the story of working class urban dwellers of various ethnic groups-Chinese, Jews, Italians, and Irish-routinely interacting in social and economic settings. Yee's numerous, fascinating anecdotes-such as one about an Irishman who served as the only funeral director for Chinese for many years-recount the lived experiences of these neighborhoods, detailing friendships, business relationships, and sexual relationships that vividly counter the prevailing idea that different ethnic groups did not mix except in ways marked by violence and hostility.
