(p.11) Two Philadelphia
Bible-Carrying Christians

David Harrington Watt

Oxford University Press

During the early 1990s, when the fieldwork upon which this book is based was conducted, economic conditions in Philadelphia were not good. Jobs were relatively scarce and the city's cultural and educational institutions usually seemed short of cash. Life in the city was characterized by relatively high rates of violence and crime. At that time, there was a great deal of segregation – racial, ethnic, and economic ℃ in Philadelphia.

Keywords:   1990s, conditions, crime, economic, jobs, Philadelphia, segregation, violence
