Too often the term 'ghetto' is simply applied to any African American community, to the inner city as a whole, or recently to anything that is degraded or unrefined. But what is a ghetto? Does it arise organically from cities, or is it a consequence of social conflict and government policy? Are the banlieues, barrios, favelas, shantytowns, and slums of Europe, South America, and other continents similar to the American ghetto?

The Ghetto invites us to reexamine our assumptions by addressing these and other critical questions. Concise, original essays from top scholars around the world clearly describe essential arguments and discoveries, making the current discussion of marginalized urban spaces accessible for all readers and students of urban studies and sociology.

About the Author:

Ray Hutchison is professor of sociology in the Department of Public and Environmental Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and Santander Chair of Humanities and Social Sciences at the New University of Lisbon. He is series editor of Research in Urban Sociology and senior editor of the forthcoming three-volume Encyclopedia of Urban Studies.

Bruce D. Haynes is associate professor of sociology at the University of California, Davis. His publications include Red Lines, Black Spaces: The Politics of Race and Space in a Black Middle-Class Suburb.

Review:

Unique in its field, this edited volume reconsiders the Chicago School's iconic ghetto' against other marginalized, stigmatized spaces worldwide, such as Paris's banlieues, Rio's favelas, and Kenya's refugee camps Consisting of 12 generally richly analytical presentations, this volume should be enticing for senior and graduate-level seminars in sociology or urban studies. Highly recommended.”
