Untenable : the true story of white ethnic flight from America's cities / Jack Cashill.

Cashill, Jack, (author.).


"In Untenable, Cashill broadens the canvas to tell the story of his neighborhood and others like it. His is the first serious book on the subject of 'white flight' written from the perspective of those forced to flee. Cashill and the scores of people he interviewed speak candidly about race, schools, and crime--subjects that are essential to any honest understanding of the issue. Like J.D. Vance's Hillbilly Elegy, Untenable looks at large national issues through a very personal lens"-- Book flap.
