Giới thiệu:

_How the Other Half Lives: Studies Among the Tenements of New York_ (1890) was a pioneering work of photojournalism by Jacob Riis, documenting the squalid living conditions in New York City slums in the 1880s. It served as a basis for future muckraking journalism by exposing the slums to New York City’s upper and middle class. The title of the book is a reference to a phrase of François Rabelais, who wrote in _Pantagruel_: "one half of the world does not know how the other half lives".
