Praise

“Timely…Important and troubling.”
Chicago Tribune

“Improving conditions in America’s urban neighborhoods will require a deeper understanding of the complex dynamics that divide residents along racial, ethnic and class lines. This compelling and exhaustively researched book makes an invaluable contribution to that endeavor. The focus is on Chicago, but policymakers and concerned citizens from every city in America will learn a great deal from Wilson and Taub’s work.”
—Senator John Edwards

“Profoundly sobering. . . . Careful and convincing.”
The Washington Post Book World

“Offers a dispassionate analysis of the facts. . . . Wilson and Taub bring the best of social science to bear on these issues; their call is for each of us to face up to what these facts mean for our country and for each of us as citizens.”
—Senator Bill Bradley
