I enjoyed this book. It is primary a discussion of cultural and sociological characteristics of various groups within a sub-area. For example, a chapter is on China Town in San Francisco. He talks about its origin and its ebbs and flows.

I would have liked a little more rigor has to how to test, measure, or evaluate an enclave versus an area which just has many ___fill-in-the-blank__ people/businesses. What type of density or synergy is necessary? How many industries, besides restaurants, does it have to have? I would have liked a little more empirical rigor, i.e., numbers or maps that could denote an enclave or its boundaries. It tended to be too generalized.

clear simple and sweet overview of urban cultures and how they developed in American cities, not much depth but great overview, enjoyed.
