Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Examines the extent to which race affected public policy formation in Buffalo, New York between 1934 and 1997.

In this provocative and in-depth history of several decades of recent Buffalo city politics, Neil Kraus examines the local political causes behind geographic concentrations of poverty. Race, Neighborhoods, and Community Power makes the compelling case that policy adopted at the local level has had a significant impact on the development of low-income, segregated urban neighborhoods. By examining the policy areas of urban housing, urban renewal, education, fair housing, as well as several major development decisions, Kraus offers a detailed, step-by-step investigation of how each policy decision affected the segregation of the city's east side, and thus provides a new perspective on the debate over concentrated urban policy.

"The case studies are quite interesting and demonstrate that local decisions in urban renewal, public housing, and education reinforced concentrated poverty, and not only racial segregation. This is an important point..." -- Dennis R. Judd, University of Missouri-St. Louis

Neil Kraus is Assistant Professor of Political Science at Hamline University.
