Palgrave MacMillan

<p><em>Urban Segregation and Governance in the Americas</em>, (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.</p>
