Praise For…


“In The Cycle of Segregation, Maria Krysan and Kyle Crowder offer a major breakthrough in understanding of the roots of residential segregation in U.S. society today. Their social-structural sorting perspective elegantly and convincingly explains how black and Hispanic segregation can persist even as minority incomes rise and discrimination and prejudice in housing markets decline. It is a remarkable achievement.”

—Douglas S. Massey, Henry G. Bryant Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs, Princeton University



“I highly recommend this book. Maria Krysan and Kyle Crowder's social structural sorting perspective provides new theoretical lens for recognizing and understanding the self-reinforcing processes of residential segregation. Their original analysis of the drivers of segregation and thoughtful policy prescriptions for dismantling it make Cycle of Segregation a must-read.”

—William Julius Wilson, Lewis P. and Linda L. Geyser University Professor, Harvard University
