Detroit: Race Riots, Racial Conflicts, and Efforts to Bridge the Racial Divide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Episodes of racial conflict in Detroit form just one facet of the city’s storied and legendary history, and they have sometimes overshadowed the less widely known but equally important occurrence of interracial cooperation in seeking solutions to the city’s problems. The conflicts also present many opportunities to analyze, learn from, and interrogate the past in order to help lay the groundwork for a stronger, more equitable future. This astute and prudent history poses a number of critical questions: Why and where have race riots occurred in Detroit? How has the racial climate changed or remained the same since the riots? What efforts have occurred since the riots to reduce racial inequality and conflicts, and to build bridges across racial divides? Unique among books on the subject, Detroit pays special attention to post-1967 social and political developments in the city, and expands upon the much-explored black-white dynamic to address the influx of more recent populations to Detroit: Middle Eastern Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans. Crucially, the book explores the role of place of residence, spatial mobility, and spatial inequality as key factors in determining access to opportunities such as housing, education, employment, and other amenities, both in the suburbs and in the city.

Synopsis:

This astute and circumspect history of Detroit’s racial evolution poses a number of critical questions about race riots, the racial climate, and racial inequality in the city. With a special focus on post-1967 developments and more recent racial dynamics that reflect Detroit’s changing demographics, the book assesses spatial mobility’s prospects as a force of change.
