In this groundbreaking history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein argues with exacting precision and fascinating insight how segregation in America—the incessant kind that continues to dog our major cities and has contributed to so much recent social strife—is the byproduct of explicit government policies at the local, state, and federal level. It explodes the myth that America's cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation--that is, through individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies.

Richard Rothstein is a Distinguished Fellow of the Economic Policy Institute and a Fellow at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. A former columnist for the New York Times, Rothstein lives in California, where is a Fellow of the Haas Institute at the University of California (Berkeley).
