Abstract: Diversity and multiculturalism are the goals of many cities and neighborhoods in both North Carolina and the United States. However, even when a neighborhood is statistically integrated, it maybe still segregated in terms of social and political power. Sarah Mayorga-Gallo’s first book examines the social and political relationships of multiethnic neighborhood Creekridge Park in Durham. Mayorga-Gallo conducted the research as part of her dissertation from Duke University. This book is a revision of Mayorga-Gallo’s dissertation.
