      Part I: The Political Economy of Suburban Development and the Race of Economic Value, Chapter 2. Local Control and the Rights of Property: The Politics of Incorporation, Zoning, and Race before Chapter 3. Financing Suburban Growth: Federal Policy and the Birth of a Racialized Market for Homes, Chapter 4. While considerable attention has been given to encounters between black citizens and police in urban communities, there have been limited analyses of such encounters in suburban settings. Race, Place, and Suburban Policing tells the full story of social injustice, racialized policing, nationally profiled shootings, and the ambiguousness of black life in a suburban context.

        These communities were absolutely segregated and largely white, but that meant something different in than it does today: The suburbs became new melting pots of ethnic and religious diversity. America has become a nation of suburbs. Confronting the popular image of suburbia as simply a refuge for affluent whites, The New Suburban History rejects the stereotypes of a conformist and conflict-free suburbia. The seemingly calm streets of suburbia were, in fact, battlegrounds over race, class, and politics.
