RSF book Cycle of Segregation: Social Processes and Residential Stratification (2017), by Maria Krysan (University of Illinois at Chicago) and Kyle Crowder (University of Washington), has received the 2018 Oliver Cromwell Cox book award from the Section on Racial and Ethnic Minorities of the American Sociological Association (ASA). The award recognizes sociological books published in the last two years that make a distinguished and significant contribution to the eradication of racism.
In Cycle of Segregation, Krysan and Crowder explore why residential segregation has remained virtually unchanged in many metropolitan areas over the last five decades. They examine how everyday social processes shape residential stratification, showing how past neighborhood experiences, social networks, and daily activities all affect the mobility patterns of different racial groups in ways that have cemented segregation as a self-perpetuating cycle in the twenty-first century.
Cycle of Segregation has also received Honorable Mention for the 2018 Outstanding Contribution to Scholarship Book Award from the Section on Race, Gender, and Class of the American Sociological Association.
