Overview

The contributors to this volume address issues in urban social theory, contemporary cultural change and analysis of racial subordination in their examination of the relationship between racism, the city and the state. Focusing on the urban process of racialization, the

contributors demonstrate how the city sustains these profound divisions. Also addressed are such related issues as the process by which ethnicity has become more powerful than social class for new migrants to California, as well as how the reconstruction of French capitalism has

contributed to the growth of right-wing popularism. They also show how urban space in the U.K. has, over the last two decades, been redefined in ways which sustain separation and racial inequality. In this climate, black minorities struggling for survival in Britain's cities are

inevitably seen as responsible for violence, crime, poverty and overcrowding.
