Product description

Review

"Concise and clear without eschewing important nuances, these well-crafted syntheses will be valuable to instructors preparing classes as well as the graduate student audiences who are likely to be the main consumers of this tome." - Damaris Rose, Centre Urbanisation Culture Société Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique, Montreal, PQ, Canada

"What a marvelous, comprehensive treatment of this evolving, now mainstream, urban process, correctly characterized as neo-colonialism. Provides an international perspective and highlights the key role of the state." - Chester Hartman, Director of Research, Poverty & Race Research Action Council, Washington, DC, USA

"The editors have performed a valuable service in bringing together key texts on what is probably the most critical phenomenon in cities around the world today. If you teach upper-level urban geography or urban studies, this is the reader for which you’ve been waiting! By making these sometimes fugitive texts available under one cover, the editors have saved us a lot of time and increased the likelihood that students will actually read the material!" - Briavel Holcomb, Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University, USA

‘"Gentrification" is shorthand for a process of restructuring cities that has major implications for their future and the welfare of their residents. It has, for that very reason, become a highly controversial subject, slippery and subject to discordant interpretations and responses. This excellent book gets to the heart of the problem, presenting orthodoxies and critiques, empirical and theoretical approaches, and cases from widely differing contexts, providing raw meat for real debates.’ - Peter Marcuse, School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, Columbia University, USA

"...this is an excellent collection and a must for the student of gentrification and policy makers in the related areas of redevelopment, revitalization and community change." - Australian Planner
