CHOICE Review

Editors Adelman and Mele have included very provocative readings that analyze how black-white racial residential segregation persists, resulting in spatial and social exclusion that continues to reinforce racial inequality. With a foreword by Nancy A. Denton, the volume is organized into five sections with ten readings that examine the linkages between traditional spatial mechanisms of racial exclusion and resulting in spatial outcomes. Though the readings do not systematically catalog theoretical perspectives, approaches, and methods often used to understand racial exclusion, the contributors to this volume focus on how racial exclusion and spatial segregation affect urban minorities, providing a broader social and scientific dialogue for scholars interested in racial exclusion and segregation. Two concluding readings highlight how racial exclusion has moved from overt to covert practices and how racial and spatial exclusion, as well other forms of exclusion, continue to promote social inequality in the 21st century. In summary, the readings were generally interesting and thought provoking with emphasis on how racial segregation has evolved into a new form, how it feels to residents, and how racial inequality can be challenged in the contemporary US. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. --Peter J. Venturelli, Valparaiso University
