Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

6 Scopus citations


The establishment of Urban Affairs Quarterly/Urban Affairs Review coincided notably with significant social and political developments as well as the publication of major scholarship having to do with issues of (in)equality. The author suggests and briefly considers what he takes to be some leading examples of how questions of racial equality have been closely intertwined with urban politics and the study thereof since the early 1960s. He also notes some emerging phenomena that seem likely to continue to place urban politics and research in UAR at the crossroads of equality in the United States.
