Racial stability: A community decision
The development of the issue of racial stability is traced in a Chicago suburb through analysis of key actors, organizations, and rules of the political process. A transition from race to class and form the community level to a consortium of municipalities is observed and explained through reference to demographic, ideological, geographic, and strategic factors. The experience of this suburb is argued to represent a pattern which may be useful in other suburban venues.
