Locked In and Locked Out : The Impact of Urban Land Use Policy and Market Forces on African Americans
Benjamin F. BoboISBN: 0275967549;
African Americans have suffered intensely at the hands of America's dominant group, but the roles played by urban planning, land use policy, and the free market are not well known. This book considers their locking effect on African Americans, showing, for instance, that planning and zoning policies in upscale neighborhoods lock African Americans out while market mechanisms in decaying neighborhoods lock them in. Arguing that the locking effect leads to the disenfranchisement of African Americans, Bobo shows how wealth is channeled to the dominant group and African Americans' life choices are denuded, creating a volatile situation.
