"Elisabeth Lasch-Quinn has crafted an excellent new perspective on the historical development of the American settlement movement."--Arkansas Historical Quarterly
"This is an excellent book, short, well written, informative and interestingly illustrated. . . . It widens our understanding of the American settlement movement and makes a valuable contribution to the lengthy but inconclusive history of race relations."--Labour History Review
"Black Neighbors should be required reading for social welfare historians, settlement house and neighborhood center staff and board members, and all social workers concerned with the linkage between personal social services and social reform."--Social Service Review
"Black Neighbors is social history at its best. . . . [It is] solidly grounded on empirical research and illuminated by sound theory."--Clarke Chambers, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities
"A marvelous study. [Lasch-Quinn] offers both a penetrating critique of the American settlement house movement and a new story that rights the regional balance and brings African American struggles in their own behalf to the fore."--Jacquelyn Dowd Hall, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
