Description:

From one of America's most admired sociologists and urban policy advisers, "There Goes the Neighborhood" is a long-awaited look at how race, class, and ethnicity influence one of Americans' most personal choices--where we choose to live. The result of a three-year study of four working- and lower-middle class neighborhoods in Chicago, these riveting first-person narratives and the meticulous research which accompanies them reveal honest yet disturbing realities--ones that remind us why the elusive American dream of integrated neighborhoods remains a priority of race relations in our time.

William Julius Wilson, an American sociologist, received his Ph.D. from Washington State University in 1966 and teaches at the University of Chicago.
