Abstract

The death of American historian Arnold Hirsch, in 2018, generated multiple reexaminations of his profoundly influential “second ghetto thesis.” Hirsch’s landmark Making the Second Ghetto: Race and Housing in Chicago, 1940 - 1960 (1983) is considered among the most important books on twentieth-century American history published in the past half century. In 2003, contributors to a special issue of the Journal of Urban History reflected on the twentieth anniversary of Hirsch’s second ghetto thesis. More recently, a new generation of urbanists have emerged who build upon and challenge Hirsch’s work. This forum highlights this new generation.
