These essays deserve all of your attention, the smallness of the book hiding how much information and introspection Chang packs into each sentence. They’re ostensibly about segregation and inequality, and are best served by being read with others, the bulk of your understanding coming from the discussion you have while trying to flesh out your own reaction. Chang’s observations that "culture matters, context matters, and cultural context matters" are sharp and intelligent, and I’ll definitely be checking out more of his work.
