Civility in the City: Blacks, Jews, and Koreans in Urban America

Civility in the City: Blacks, Jews, and Koreans in Urban America

Kyeyoung Park, of University of California at Los Angeles, reviews Civility in the City: Blacks, Jews, and Koreans in Urban America, by Jennifer Lee. While other scholars emphasize “Black-Korean tension,” this book argues that most merchant-customer interactions between Korean immigrant merchants and black customers are, in fact, positive rather than negative. The author reaches these conclusions based off of data of 75  African American, Jewish, and Korean merchants and 75 black customers.
