Abstract from the distributor :
The American ghetto, the British inner city, and the French urban periphery are widely known as the "problem districts, the no-go areas" of their metropolis - territories of deprivation, dereliction and danger to be shunned and feared.

In his new book, Urban Outcasts, Loïc Wacquant reveals that urban marginality is not everywhere the same, as the reader is taken inside the dilapidated black ghetto of inner Chicago and the deindustrializing banlieue of outer Paris.

Drawing on a wealth of original fieldwork, surveys and historical data, Urban Outcasts casts new light on the explosive conjunction of mounting misery and stupendous affluence evident in the cities of advanced and advancing countries throughout the globe.

Join Loïc Wacquant as he offers vital new tools for rethinking urban marginality and reinvigorates the public debate over social inequality and citizenship.
Loïc Wacquant is professor of sociology at the University of California-Berkeley and Researcher at the Centre de sociologie européenne, Paris.
