MEDIA REVIEWS
'Paradoxes of Segregation scrutinises urban segregation landscapes in Southern Europe. It unpacks the dynamic and complex - sometimes non-linear - relations between social inequalities and spatial segregation and the various ways in which these are approached and conceptualised. The book adds to our understanding of (ethnic) segregation by comprehensively discussing the important and distinctive effects of local, regional, and institutional context specificities. A must-read for all who are interested in segregation.'
Sako Musterd, Professor of Urban Geography, University of Amsterdam


'This book is a major contribution to the literature because it draws attention to a large region that is understudied in terms of segregation. The book clearly demonstrates, against common wisdom, that relatively low levels of segregation for disadvantaged groups may coexist with their extreme deprivation. A must-read for anyone interested in segregation issues.'
Thomas Maloutas, Professor of Social Geography, Harokopio University, Greece
