The Store in the Hood is a comprehensive study of conflicts between immigrant merchants and customers throughout the U.S. during the 20th century. From the lynchings of Sicilian immigrant merchants in the late 1800s, to the riots in L.A. following the acquittal of the police officers who beat Rodney King, to present-day Detroit, recurrent conflicts between immigrant business owners and their customers have disrupted the stability of American life. Devastating human lives, property and public order, these conflicts have been the subject of periodic investigations that are generally limited in scope and emphasize the outlooks and cultural practices of the involved groups as the root of most disputes. This book develops a more nuanced understanding by exploring merchant/customer conflicts over the past hundred years across a wide range of ethnic groups and settings. Utilizing published research, official statistics, interviews, and ethnographic data collected from diverse locations, the book reveals how powerful groups and institutions have shaped the environments in which merchant/customer conflicts occur. These conflicts must be seen as products of the larger society's values, policies and structures, not solely as a consequence of actions by immigrants, the urban poor, and other marginal groups.

From the Back Cover:

"This is a fascinating study, offering fresh insights in a lucid style, from a master sociologist with a keen sense of history."--Reed Ueda, Tufts University

"The Store in the Hood offers a nuanced, thoughtful, and thorough account of merchant/customer conflicts in underprivileged racial minority communities over the span of one hundred years in American society. It dispels the myths about ethnic entrepreneurship and compels readers to think critically beyond existing theories and empirical findings."--Min Zhou, UCLA; author of Contemporary Chinese America

"The story of ethnics and enterprise captures both the American dream andthe American nightmare, since the same people who seem to be pulling themselves up by their bootstraps, seem to also find themselves in conflict with their neighbors and customers. The Store in the Hood, Steve Gold revisits this American perennial, taking the long view to tell a surprising story about the conflicts both engendered and avoided by the past century's waves of ethnic entrepreneurs. This deeply researched, well-written book will appeal to students and scholars alike."--Roger Waldinger, distinguished professor of sociology, UCLA

"Steven Gold has written an enlightening book, full of rich material, that brings fresh perspectives to a familiar American story: conflicts between immigrant and ethnic merchants and their customers. Providing fascinating case studies that take us from the early 20th century to the present, The Store in the Hood is an important addition to the literature on ethnic entrepreneurs."--Nancy Foner, distinguished professor of sociology, Hunter College and Graduate Center of the City University of New York
