A Social History of the New York City Cabdriver
"You have to live in New York to know how critical taxis are to circulation in the great metropolis. But you do not have to live in New York to be fascinated by this unusual book, which gives a powerful human dimension to one of Gotham's most important subcultures."
—Kenneth T. Jackson, editor of The Encyclopedia of New York City
"In this informative, solid history, Graham Russell Gao Hodges traces the story of the cab drivers from 1907, when the first metered taxis appeared on New York streets, to the present."
—Pete Hamill, New York Times Book Review
