Jonathan Gill’s HARLEM: The Four Hundred Year History from Dutch Village to Capital of Black America (Grove Press, February 2011, $29.95 hardcover, 496 pages, ISBN: 978-0-8021-1910-0) is the first book ever to tell Harlem’s story in its entirety. Sweeping and richly detailed, Gill’s HARLEM manages to distill 400 years of fascinating history—from the arrival of the first Europeans on America’s shores to the political struggles, joyful music, and economic traumas of the 20th century—into an eminently readable work overflowing with captivating characters.
