The scope of the study 1s extremely broad which prohibits in-depth analysis of any one area. At the same time, this makes it possible to view many aspects of Des Plaines as a non-integrated city and to see it in the perspective which is necessarily in keeping with the concept that the entire problem of real integration is complex and not reducible to one area for explanation. The study consists of a short history of the city, and a description of the city as it now exists. This is included to help to explain why the city has not previously been integrated, and to explore what possible past occurrences there have been which have created the city and its contemporary outlook toward integration.
