Momeni pulls together 1,007 citations to articles and monographs on housing for minorities. Instead of brief annotations, he includes an abstract or summary of each title, sometimes written by the original author. The descriptions are long enough to allow the reader to appraise the title. Entries are classed by broad topic--e.g., discrimination and redlining, segregation, desegregation, rentals, ownership and home value, subsidies, public housing, regulations and the courts, elderly housing, homelessness. There are author and subject indexes. Particularly valuable is a 15-page analysis of data from the 1980 census in which Momeni studies differences in housing occupied by minorities. If affords students and librarians a readable overview of the minority housing picture in 1980; no similar bibliography incorporates data from this census. The foreword and preface, written by two experts in the field, add commentary on the subject. Recommended for academic and research libraries supporting sociology and urban studies. Choice The proliferation of research on minority housing in the past decade has created the need for a comprehensive bibliography that will provide a synthesis of knowledge on the subject and bring together the results of many widely dispersed studies and documents. This outstanding reference work chronicles the historical patterns of change in minority housing conditions, and paves the way to a greater understanding of the complexities of the market dynamics of minority housing over the past two decades. Containing more than one thousand entries, this expansive volume summarizes the latest research literature covering such topics as redlining, fair housing, the impact of various housing initiatives, the problems of the elderly, and the homeless.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a companion volume to the author's anthology, Race, Ethnicity, and Minority Housing in the United States (Greenwood Press, 1986). Momeni, a professor at Howard University, has prepared an introductory review essay, filled with statistical tables, that examines the leading indicators of housing differentials by race and ethnicity as revealed in the 1980 Census. Housing problems confronting the major minority groups in the country--blacks, native Americans, Asians, and Hispanics--are discussed. The heart of this book is an annotated bibliography with 1,007 selected references to current literature treating minority and low-income housing in the United States. The entries are divided by subject into twelve chapters. Topics covered include general housing conditions for minorities, discrimination in housing, redlining, residential segregation, desegregation, rental housing, rent control, minority home ownership, housing laws, public housing, regulatory actions, elderly housing, and homelessness. This excellent bibliography contains citations to unpublished dissertations as well as published materials. The descriptive annotations are quite extensive. Indexes to authors and subjects complete this work, which belongs in large public libraries, academic libraries, and appropriate special libraries where scholars, students, researchers, and policy makers may consult it."-ARBA
." . . Momeni's update of housing conditions according to the most recent census data and compilation of housing scholarship is indispensible for future work. Designed primarily for demographers, sociologists and urbanologists, it fills a vacuum and points the way for additional research tools in this important area of study. Housing and Racial/Ethnic Minority Status in the United States is a selective, yet most welcome reference work."-Journal of American Ethnic History
