Book Description

Urban Segregation and the Welfare State examines ethnic and socio-economic segregation patterns, social polarisation, and social exclusion in major cities in the Western world. Contributors from across North America and Europe provide in-depth analysis of particular cities, ranging from Johannesburg, Chicago and Toronto to Amsterdam, Stockholm and Belfast. The authors highlight the social problems in and of cities, indicating differences between nation-states in terms of economic restructuring, migration, welfare state regimes and "ethnic history".

Reviews

'Overall then this volume is a tightly edited, coherent and satisfying read which opens up arenas of debate not hitherto sufficiently foregrouded to the extent they deserve.' - Housing Studies, Vol 14, No.1 99
