Summary
On March 29, 1516, the city council of Venice issued a decree forcing Jews to live in "il geto"--a closed quarter named for the copper foundry that once occupied the area. The term stuck. In this sweeping and original account, Mitchell Duneier traces the idea of the ghetto from its beginnings in the sixteenth century and its revival by the Nazis to the present. He argues that we cannot comprehend the entanglements of race, poverty, and place in America today without recalling the ghettos of Europe, as well as earlier efforts to understand the problems of the American city
Summary
Chronicles the history of the ghetto, from its beginnings in the 16th century as a Venetian edict forcing Jewish citizens to live in a closed quarter, to its revival by the Nazis in the 20th century, to its urban manifestations in the present-day world
