?This book is a comprehensive bio-bibliography, which includes references to Wirth's contributions in urban planning, race relations, social work, and local, national, and international public policy. It will serve as a valuable reference work for scholars interested in the history of urban studies, social work, and the relationship between academic research and the development of local and national public policy designed to address issues of social concern.?-The Merriam Center Library
