Overview

How fair are America's urban housing markets, and how effective is the government at ensuring open and diverse housing options for minority groups? To answer these questions, Fragile Rights Within Cities offers a current social science and policy examination of the understudied issue of equal opportunity trends and enforcement practices in housing. The contributors to this collection - who are among the country's major analysts of race and ethnicity, housing, and public policies - provide a rich, multi-disciplinary assessment of government programs aimed at enforcing one of America's hallmark civil rights laws. By evaluating roughly 40 years of civil rights education and enforcement within the nation's effort to promote fairness in housing markets, these experts provide a sense of possible policy options for the future.
