Neighborhoods, race and the state
Journal of Urban History
The review essay critiques two recent books on the racial and class transitions experienced by urban and suburban neighborhoods in the United States, while situating them within the broader scholarly literature on neighborhood transition. I was particularly interested in probing the role of government policy in facilitating racial and class change, as well as illuminating the ramifications of such state action. --author-supplied description
