Neighborhood Politics

Neighborhood Politics

by Matthew A. Crenson
     
 
The setting for the author's book is Baltimore. In this surprising, powerful work, he finds that such neighborhood action does not arise from a strong sense of neighborliness or community feeling. Instead, it is precisely when neighbors dislike one another that some features of informal self-organization emerge.
