KIRKUS REVIEW

Only White could crystallize the New York he loves, the New York he hates, the New York phenomena-unique-unparalleled, a composite of neighborhood units the visitor never sees, ""One World"" in microcosm. He sees its occupants in three categories,- the born New Yorkers who take it for granted- but wouldn't be elsewhere; the commuters- in and out, rooted nowhere: those who came to New York questing. These desperate factors account for the high tensions, the achievements, the changes in tempo and temper. And now there is injected a new element, by way of making New York the capital of the world... Reissue in small book form of an article. Plus sale item, but a minor White item.
