The Other Americans in Paris: Businessmen, Countesses, Wayward Youth, 1880–1941

Miles Reding, of the University of Oregon, reviews The Other Americans in Paris: Businessmen, Countesses, Wayward Youth, 1880–1941 by Nancy L. Green. In her book, Green thus introduces us for the first time to a long-forgotten part of the American overseas population—predecessors to today’s expats—while exploring the politics of citizenship and the business relationships, love lives, and wealth (and poverty for some) of Americans who staked their claim to the Paris. The Other Americans in Paris shows that elite migration is a part of migration tout court and that debates over “Americanization” have deep roots in the twentieth century.
