Description - Life in Poverty Neighbourhoods by Jurgen Friedrichs
This book explores the central question in urban and housing studies: 'Do poor neighbourhoods make their residents poorer?' Does the neighbourhood structure exert an effect on the residents (behavioural, attitudinal, or psychological) even when controlling for individual characteristics of the residents? This issue has offered a locus for multi-disciplinary investigations on both sides of the Atlantic, and this volume demonstrates the rich geographical, sociological, economic and psychological dimensions of this issue. This book was previously published as a special issue of the journal "Housing Studies".
