    schema:reviewBody ""Northern whites in the post-World War II era began to support the principle of civil rights, so why did many of them continue to oppose racial integration in their communities? Challenging conventional wisdom about the growth, prosperity, and racial exclusivity of American suburbs, David M.P. Freund argues that previous attempts to answer this question have over-looked a change in the racial thinking of whites and the role of suburban politics in effecting this change. In Colored Property, he shows how federal intervention spurred a dramatic shift in the language and logic of residential exclusion - away from invocations of a mythical racial hierarchy and toward talk of markets, property, and citizenship."--Jacket." ;
