Synopsis

Despite increasing

racial tolerance and national diversity, neighborhood segregation remains a

very real problem in cities across America. Scholars, government officials, and

the general public have long attempted to understand why segregation persists

despite efforts to combat it, traditionally focusing on the issue of "white

flight," or the idea that white residents will move to other areas if their

neighborhood becomes integrated. In Hate

Thy Neighbor, Jeannine Bell expands upon these understandings by

investigating a little-examined but surprisingly prevalent problem of "move-in

violence:" the anti-integration violence directed by white residents at

minorities who move into their neighborhoods. Apprehensive about their new

neighbors and worried about declining property values, these residents resort

to extra-legal violence and intimidation tactics, often using vandalism and

verbal harassment to combat what they view as a violation of their territory. Hate Thy Neighbor is the first work to seriously examine the

role violence plays in maintaining housing segregation, illustrating how

intimidation and fear are employed to force minorities back into separate

neighborhoods and prevent meaningful integration. Drawing on evidence that

includes in-depth interviews with ordinary citizens and analysis of Fair

Housing Act cases, Bell provides a moving examination of how neighborhood

racial violence is enabled today and how it harms not only the victims, but

entire communities.

By finally shedding

light on this disturbing phenomenon, Hate

Thy Neighbor not only enhances our understanding of how prevalent

segregation and this type of hate-crime remain, but also offers insightful

analysis of a complex mix of remedies that can work to address this difficult

problem.
