Description:

Teresa Caldeira's pioneering study of fear, crime, and segregation in Satilde;o Paulo poses essential questions about citizenship and urban change in contemporary democratic societies. Focusing on Satilde;o Paulo, and using comparative data on Los Angeles, she identifies new patterns of segregation developing in these cities and suggests that these patterns are appearing in many metropolises.
