Teresa Caldeira's pioneering study of fear, crime, and segregation in Sao Paulo poses essential questions about citizenship and urban change in contemporary democratic societies. Focusing on Sao Paulo, and using comparative data on Los Angeles, she identifies new patterns of segregation developing in these cities and suggests that these patterns are appearing in many metropolises.
