Summary "Ethnic residential segregation is a feature of many cities around the world. While segregation is frequently interpreted as a short term adaptive device for members of recent immigrant groups, and therefore as a predominantly positive phenomenon, prolongation of such segregation is generally viewed as negative. A fundamental question arises - how can ethnic differences be accommodated? Is segregation the solution or can members of culturally distinctive groups be housed in patterns that mix the difference? Ethnicity and Housing addresses these questions through wide-ranging case studies drawn from North America, Europe, Africa, Latin America and Israel. The book represents a rich offering of experience that can be drawn on directly by housing practitioners who are operating in multi-ethnic contexts."--BOOK JACKET
