"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

Editorial 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 This excellent bibliography contains citations to unpublished dissertations as well as published materials.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
