During last two decades of the 20th century, racial segregation fell while class segregation rose, yielding a new and more complex pattern of segregation by race and class, with race class interactions becoming increasingly salient. Recent trends in race-class segregation are documented, and then the causes and consequences of contemporary segregation are analyzed to reveal the new but still powerful role of segregation in structuring well-being in American society.
