Religious Freedom, Immigration, and Pluralism in Flushing, Queens

R. Scott Hanson and Foreword by Martin E. Marty

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Flushing is now perhaps the most extreme case of religious and ethnic pluralism in the world--and an ideal place to explore how America's long experiment with religious freedom and religious pluralism began and continues.
  • There are two equally important parts to the book: the history of Flushing from the colonial period through the nineteenth century, and the continuation of the story through the twentieth century to the aftermath of September 11, 2001.
