Jose Itzigsohn, a Professor of Sociology at Brown University, reviews Making New York Dominican: Small Business, Politics, and Everyday Life. The book examines the economic and political presence of Dominicans in New York. The ethnographic study details Dominican business operation, social networks, family ties and organizational structure built on cultural clubs and community organizations. However, the author argues that though Dominican businesses are rooted in community networks, they are not an ethnic enclave and interact with various political and economic institutions in New York City.
