How the Other Half Lives

Author: Jacob Riis

Year Published: 1890

What Others are Saying:

  • The book was highly influential in getting New Yorkers and other Americans to consider the living and working conditions in the tenements of the early 20th century and Riis' photographs of the era still resonate as our economy becomes more and more one of the haves and have nots.
