bookcover

Palgrave MacMillan

Wilson, Robert H.

Urban Segregation and Governance in the Americas, (Palgrave MacMillan) edited by LBJ Professor and Associate Dean Robert H. Wilson, with Bryan R. Robert, uses the recent availability of geo-coded census data and techniques of spatial analysis to conduct the first detailed comparative examination of residential segregation in six major Latin American metropolises, with Austin, Texas, as a U.S. comparison. It demonstrates the high degree of residential segregation of contemporary Latin American cities and discusses implications for the welfare of urban residents.

Kapstein, Ethan

LBJ School of Public Affairs Professor Ethan B.
