Segregation and Crime: The Effect of Black Social Isolation on the Rates of Black Urban Violence.
Shihadeh, Edward S.; Flynn, Nicole
Social Forces, v74 n4 p1325-52 Jun 1996
Analysis of 1990 data on 151 U.S. cities indicates that the spatial isolation of blacks from whites strongly predicts rates of urban black violence (homicide and robbery). Suggests that underlying the relationship between segregation and crime is the geographic concentration of poverty, joblessness, low job skills, low education, welfare, teen pregnancy, and family disruption. Contains 86 references. (SV)
