The "promised land" for thousands of Southern blacks, postwar Chicago quickly became the most segregated city in the North, the site of the nation's worst ghettos. In this powerful book, Beryl Satter identifies the true cause of the city's slums and the ruin of urban neighborhoods throughout the country: not white flight or black culture but a widespread system of legal and financial exploitation.
