Summary

Summary

To what extent has racial segregation -- in housing, education and other public services -- persisted over the last two decades? Have patterns of segregation changed in response to urban development? Divided Neighborhoods is a comprehensive study of an important and topical issue. It shows how racial segregation has been affected by gentrification, redevelopment, the emergence of suburbs and the growth of new minorities. The role of government -- both national and local -- is also examined in detail.
