About the Author

Eric Klinenberg is assistant professor of sociology and a faculty fellow of the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern University. He is the coeditor of The Making and Unmaking of Whiteness and a regular contributor to Le Monde Diplomatique.


"A compelling narrative of urban catastrophe, Eric Klinenberg's 'social autopsy' yields deep insights into how we live and die in cities today. If there is any hope of reviving the best traditions of Chicago urban sociology, it resides with work like Heat Wave." - Studs Terkel; "Heat Wave is a remarkable investigation and a major piece of social research. Meticulously documented and beautifully written, the book is both a pathbreaking contribution to urban studies and a powerful account of social breakdowns in American life." - Richard Sennett; "Deeply moving events not only demand that we are appropriately moved, but also require that we investigate why they occur and how. By analyzing the social and political causes of so-called heat deaths, Eric Klinenberg has powerfully illuminated the causation and culpability associated with the terrible events in Chicago. The book is not only intellectually exciting but may also help to save a great many lives." - Amartya Sen
