Yale University Press

This chapter examines the role of housing segregation in the structure of racial, income, and economic inequality. It addresses the growing social cleavages in metropolitan areas where resources are separated from those in need and minority communities are battered by economic trends and hostile policies. The sociopolitical structure of cities is examined and related to a legal case in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. The aim is to grasp the success and failure of the Mount Laurel reforms of the 1970s and 1980s.

Keywords:   housing segregation, racial inequality, income inequality, economic inequality, equality, social cleavages, Mount Laurel
