Summary
"In this book, some of the nation's leading analysts and advocates show why segregation persists and how it undermines education, job prospects, and even health and safety for millions of minorities and low-income families, Calling housing "the most important invisible social policy issues in America," the book outlines an agenda to expand the geography of opportunity and assesses the political promise - and limits - of the movement for regional solutions."--BOOK JACKET
