Summary Left Behind in Rosedale is a stunning analysis of community and neighborhood decline. Through creative application of ethnographic analysis, participant observation, and in-depth interviews, Scott Cummings's book breathes human life into one of the most serious problems facing the nation's cities: the ghettoization of urban neighborhoods. Transcending demographic and statistical analysis, he tells the story of ghettoization by explaining what happens to people's lives during the process of racial transition and change.
