Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Capital and Communities in Black and White explores the problems created by global economic restructuring, the decline of inner city neighborhoods, and the heightened racial conflicts in the United States.

"Squires has made an important contribution to the national debate over how America can build a more humane and rational social order." -- Clarence Page, syndicated columnist for the Chicago Tribune

"Squires's timing couldn't be better. Rather than focus on the so-called underclass, he examines the behavior of the 'overclass'--bankers, big employers, developers, and their friends at city hall and Washington--to understand the decay of our cities. But more important, he offers hope for fixing America's urban crisis." -- Peter Dreier, Occidental College

"As Squires puts it, when corporations seek out greener pastures, they usually 'seek out whiter ones as well.' He develops a penetrating critique of the self-interested, intensely ideological right-wing scholarship that guided government policy in moving away from helping cities in the 1980s." -- Joe R. Feagin, University of Florida

"Squires does a wonderful job challenging conservative ideology regarding the 'free market' and 'privatism.' He doesn't just tell us what is wrong but presents us with some powerful ideas about possible social change." --Bonacich, University of California, Riverside

"This book is a must for policymakers, planners, analysts, and students confronting the complex challenges of uneven metropolitan growth and racial and class disparities." -- Norman Krumholz, Cleveland State University

Gregory D. Squires is Professor of Sociology and a member of the Urban Studies Program Faculty, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. He is the coauthor of Chicago: Race, Class, and the Response to Urban Decline , and the editor of From Redlining to Reinvestment and Unequal Partnerships.
