Summary
Hollywood and the news media have repeatedly depicted the inner-city retail store as a scene of racial conflict and acrimony. This book uncovers quite a different story. The author examines the relationships between black, Jewish, and Korean merchants and their black customers in New York and Philadelphia, and shows that, in fact, social order, routine, and civility are the norm. She also shows how inner-city poverty and extreme inequality, coupled with the visible presence of socially mobile newcomers, can provide fertile ground for such conflicts.-Dust jacket
