Editorial Reviews


Feagin has a good eye for identifying a theoretical problem. His continued focus on Black America contributes to the 'new urban paradigm' by posing a challenge that should not be ignored. (Contemporary Sociology)

An important resource to everyone who wants to understand urban development. (CHOICE)

Feagin has done much to shake-up the mainstream and establishment and this collection of his work provides many interesting insights and deserves to be widely read. (Capital & Class)

If this book introduces and reinforces certain important points about the political economy of urban development to mainstream sociology, then this is an important function to serve. For planners, this book provides a convenient compilation of the writings of Joe Feagin, something that makes purchasing the book worthwhile. His most poignant statement comes early in the book when he highlights the connection between some people's affluence and other's poverty. A book that helps make this point, is a book worth having in one's collection. (Journal of the American Planning Association)

Ever impassioned, always critical, never satisfied with a reality that seems to fall short of the ideals of justice and equality, Feagin's is a voice for the city, and for America, that should and must be heard. (Anthony M. Orum, University of Illinois at Chicago)
