'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
