Summary

This book is the conclusion of Wacquant´s long life discussion of urban marginalisation in France and in the United States. He compares the black ghettos in America with the Banlieues in the French metropolitans, especially in Paris. His conclusion is that these two forms of urban marginalisation are not to compare, because they have different socio-historical developments, different demographic and ethnic structures and socio-spatial conditions of life.

With L. Wacquant we have one of the most important and appreciated experts in questions of urban marginalisation and of the urban logic of inclusion and exclusion. And he is one of the sharpest critics of social inequality and exclusion in urban contexts. Insofar this book is a very important contribution to the further developments of Cities in modern capitalistic societies.
