Originally published in 1972, Minority Perspectives is the second in a series exploring metropolitan problems within the government structure. The 1960’s were a period of civils rights movements as well as poverty in the United States and in the 70’s, it became clear that poverty was closely linked to race. This report sets out to explore issues contributing to the metropolitan-minority poverty problem such as racial exclusion and public policy. The papers included in this report discuss issues such as political power in metropolitan areas, the impact an address can have on economic opportunity for minority groups and the effects that laws and litigation can have on poverty. This title will be of interest to students of environmental and urban studies.

Table of Contents
