Over the last 500 years the ghetto has accrued numerous contrasting and complex meanings; from the heart of Jewish culture in late medieval Western Europe and a more free-floating concept in the 19th century, to the Nazi definition and the ghettoization of African-Americans. Bryan Cheyette, author of The Ghetto: A Very Short Introduction, looks at why and when urban, racial and colonial ghettos have appeared, in the company of journalist and author Gary Younge and historian and JCORE director Edie Friedman.
