This volume looks at representations of ethnic and racial identities in relation to the development of urban culture in post-industrialised American cities. The concept of urban space organises the detailed illustration of a series of themes which structure chapters on white paranoia and urban decline; memories of urban passage; the racialised underclass; urban crime and justice; and globalisation and citizenship.
