New Book Review: Jennifer L. Nelson (@jlnelso) discusses Ken Kolb’s (@kenHkolb) “Retail Inequality” https://doi.org/10.1002/symb.597 @sociologylens

Ken Kolb is well known to readers of this journal and members of the SSSI for his research on inequality. In her review of Kolb’s latest book “Retail Inequality. Reframing the Food Desert Debate“, Jennifer L. Nelson highlights the rigorous and transparent approach Kolb has taken to his research that reveals the entangling of food poverty, racism, “the legacy of divestment from poor, urban, majority-Black communities by letting these causes go unsaid”, and the lack of grocery stores and develops ideas to facility equal access to good quality retail.
