When we think of segregation, what often comes to mind is apartheid South Africa, or the American South in the age of Jim Crow—two societies fundamentally premised on the concept of the separation of the races. But as Carl H. Nightingale shows us in this magisterial history, segregation is everywhere, deforming cities and societies worldwide. Starting with segregation’s ancient roots, and what the archaeological evidence reveals about humanity’s long-standing use of urban divisions to reinforce political and economic inequality, Nightingale then moves to the world of European colonialism. It was there, he shows, segregation based on color—and eventually on race—took hold; the British East India Company, for example, split Calcutta into “White Town” and “Black Town.” As we follow Nightingale’s story around the globe, we see that division replicated from Hong Kong to Nairobi, Baltimore to San Francisco, and more. The turn of the twentieth century saw the most aggressive segregation movements yet, as white communities almost everywhere set to rearranging whole cities along racial lines. Nightingale focuses closely on two striking examples: Johannesburg, with its state-sponsored separation, and Chicago, in which the goal of segregation was advanced by the more subtle methods of real estate markets and housing policy. For the first time ever, the majority of humans live in cities, and nearly all those cities bear the scars of segregation. This unprecedented, ambitious history lays bare our troubled past, and sets us on the path to imagining the better, more equal cities of the future.

Segregation: The Rising Costs for America documents how discriminatory practices in the housing markets through most of the past century, and that continue today, have produced extreme levels of residential segregation that result in significant disparities in access to good jobs, quality education, homeownership attainment and asset accumulation between minority and non-minority households. The book also demonstrates how problems facing minority communities are increasingly important to the nation's long-term economic vitality and global competitiveness as a whole. Solutions to the challenges facing the nation in creating a more equitable society are not beyond our ability to design or implement, and it is in the interest of all Americans to support programs aimed at creating a more just society. The book is uniquely valuable to students in the social sciences and public policy, as well as to policy makers, and city planners.

Seit mehr als zwei Jahrzehnten zählt die Problematik der individuellen und gesellschaftlichen Folgen der Zuwanderung nach Deutschland zu einem der zentralen Themenfelder der öffentlichen, politischen und sozialwissenschaftlichen Debatte. Dabei spielt die Frage der Eingliederung in die funktionalen gesellschaftlichen Systeme eine entscheidende Rolle. Gerade in Bezug auf die räumliche Absonderung der Migranten in bestimmte Teilgebiete der Städte wird immer häufiger vor den Risiken einer dem Eingliederungsprozess entgegenstehenden Ghettoisierung der Migranten gewarnt. Vor dem Hintergrund einer derartigen Diskussion stellte sich die für diese Arbeit zentrale Frage nach dem Verlauf der Eingliederung und insbesondere nach dem Einfluss der residentiellen Segregation der Migranten auf deren Ausgang.

First published in 1956, Segregation is a collection of Robert Penn Warren's informal conversations with southerners in the wake of the Brown v. Board of Education decision. Warren, who in his own writings often explored the theme of race in American life, traveled through his native region to talk with scores of individuals--taxi drivers, NAACP leaders, members of White Citizens groups, college students, preachers--to report their responses to the Court's decision.

Wo wohnt die ärmere Bevölkerung, wo die Ausländer? Wie haben sich die räumlichen Verteilungen beider Gruppen verändert? Welcher Zusammenhang besteht zwischen den Verteilungen der beiden Gruppen? Auf diese Fragen richten sich die Analysen in diesem Buch. Untersucht werden die soziale und ethnische Segregation in den 15 größten Städten Deutschlands im Zeitraum 1990 bis 2005. Für beide Gruppen werden die Veränderungen sowohl der Segregation als auch der Anteil der beiden Gruppen in den einzelnen Stadtteilen dargestellt, in farbigen Karten dokumentiert und erklärt. In einer Dokumentation sind für alle 15 Großstädte die wichtigsten Daten unserer Studie zusammengestellt.

Whilst most historical investigations of ethnic and religious minorities concentrate on a single town or particular group, this volume offers a much broader geographical and chronological view. Looking at towns across western, and particularly, eastern Europe from the late antique period to the fifteenth century, these papers illustrate the changing nature of questions of identity, perception, legal status and relations between groups, together with the ways in which these elements were affected by the external political regimes and ideologies to which towns were inevitably subjected.
