Race and Place: Race Relations in an American City (Cambridge Studies in Political Psychology and Public Opinion)by Susan Welch
Synopses & Reviews
This book focuses on the impact of residential changes on the attitudes and behavior of African-Americans and whites. Will whites' attitudes about blacks and blacks' attitudes toward whites change if they are living in integrated neighborhoods rather than apart from one another? Are black suburbanites more likely to share the views of their fellow white suburbanites or of their fellow African-Americans in the central city? Will residential integration and new patterns of race in the suburbs break down divisions between blacks and whites in their views of local public services? These are the central questions of this book.
An analysis of the attitudes and behavior of African Americans and whites.
