Editorial Reviews

Review

"A century from now, when today's sociologists and journalists are dust and their books are too, those who want to understand what the hell happened to Chicago will be finding the answer in this one." - Chicago Reader "To see how diversity creates strange and sometimes awkward bedfellows... turn to Mary Pattillo's Black on the Block." - Boston Globe"

About the Author

Mary Pattillo is professor of sociology and African American studies at Northwestern University. She is the author of Black Picket Fences: Privilege and Peril among the Black Middle Class, also published by the University of Chicago Press, and coeditor of Imprisoning America: The Social Effects of Mass Incarceration.

I love Chicago history and this book provides a rare insider perspective on what happened to North Kenwood. Highly Recommended!

just needed it for class. Didn't really read it so I can't give too much of a review. Must be good if it's recommended for a college class.
