Community economic development offers a promise of greater employment, but job opportunities have been slow to develop in minority neighbourhoods. After decades of efforts to combat poverty, wages are low, benefits are scarce, and employment is unstable in these communities. The structural forces that have created impoverished neighbourhoods are likely to become even more powerful as globalization intensifies, economic and spatial restructuring continues, and the ethnic composition of the population changes. Planners and policy makers need to rethink and reformulate community economic development in ways that account for the particularities of different minority groups. A problem as pervasive and entrenched as structural unemployment cannot be approached with a fits all strategy.

A new agenda for revitalizing minority neighborhoodsFrom the Back Cover:
"I really like this book. I think it fills a gap in the urban economics literature and it enriches the academic content of the field of community economic development.... All of the chapters are readable and accessible to a non-technical audience—there's no urban planning jargon. The research is timely and rigorous. Another strength is the representation of America's ethnic diversity within the book." —Cecilia Conrad, Pomona College
"This collection is both timely and important.... The variety of cities and ethnic/racial communities discussed in these readings suggests that the inherent pragmatics of effective community development demand a sensitivity to place and cultural context that is too often missing in the field." —David Bartelt, Temple University
