(p.207) Conclusion Consider Neighboring
Chicago's Block Clubs

Amanda I. Seligman

University of Chicago Press

In block clubs, residents cultivated their relationships as neighbors. This conclusion argues that scholars should take the concepts of “neighbors” and “neighboring” seriously from an analytical perspective, just as they do categories such as class, race, gender, and family. Neighboring has some advantages over “community” as a central scholarly concept; in particular, community is largely assumed to be a positive term, while the relationship of neighbors involves both conflict and cooperation.
