The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal About Identity, Race, Wealth, and Power


Throughout this eye-opening book, the author clearly demonstrates that package deliveries constitute a minuscule part of the significance of addresses—not only today, but throughout human history....A standout book of sociological history and current affairs.” —Kirkus Review 

Filled with fascinating people and histories, The Address Book illuminates the complex and sometimes hidden stories behind street names and their power to name, to hide, to decide who counts, who doesn’t—and why.
