Those involved in urban neighborhood and community research with an applied focus will find in this volume a number of useful and practical examples of how to do it...The modesty with which some of the results is presented is refreshing, and the candor with which the authors treat their shortcomings is commendable. Several authors make it quite clear that good research does not necessarily produce the best information for those working to improve the social fabric of urban communities. On the other hand, there is a certain amount of optimism in these essays for those who want to see their research produce positive results in the communities they study...[The] essays are clear and the points are well made and carefully documented. An excellent source of information, research findings, and policy recommendations. Choice

Those involved in urban neighborhood and community research with an applied focus will find in this volume a number of useful and practical examples of how to do it. . . . The modesty with which some of the results is presented is refreshing, and the candor with which the authors treat their shortcomings is commendable. Several authors make it quite clear that good research does not necessarily produce the best information for those working to improve the social fabric of urban communities. On the other hand, there is a certain amount of optimism in these essays for those who want to see their research produce positive results in the communities they study. . . . [The] essays are clear and the points are well made and carefully documented. An excellent source of information, research findings, and policy recommendations. - Choice
The twelve essays in Ralph Taylor's collection help to flesh out the picture of what happened to America's neighborhoods during the 1980s. . . . This book, taken as a whole comprises an intriguing albeit uneven series of snapshots of current neighborhood reserch and policy. - Contemporary Sociology
