Chicago: Race, Class, and the Response to Urban Decline

by Gregory D. Squires, Larry Bennett, Phillip Nyden, Kathleen McCourt

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"An important and useful study...that is accessible to undergraduates and yet provocative enough to interest the urban scholar."
American Journal of Sociology

"This incisive book is a much needed intellectual guide to the underlying social and economic forces that have shaped Chicago and continue to transform the city. I strongly recommend it to scholars and activists who seek to understand Chicago’s urban terrain."
Derek Shearer

"Offers a fresh look at the ‘City of Big Shoulders’ by viewing its people and politics from an economic perspective. Of all the books I have read about my city, few have caused me to rethink prevailing social, economic, and political notions about the future of our city-and others-as much as this one."
Clarence E. Page, columnist for the Chicago Tribune
