Product description


"The co-authors of Gentrifier take a daring tack: Professors all, they break the third wall of social science to admit that their interest is not purely academic." Gentrifiers themselves, Schlichtman, Patch and Hill "believe that by sharing their experiences, they can help make sociological sense of this fraught topic."

--- Daniel Brook - The New York Times, Sunday, July 9, 2017

This book will provoke outrage among many gentrification scholars. But it provides a welcome corrective to the slap-dash way gentrification is used an explanatory force in popular narratives and some scholarship... [The] cover price puts it just within reach of the interested general reader, who I would encourage to read it. It would also be a valuable addition to reading lists on urban studies, urban geography and urban planning. --- Dr Peter Matthews - LSE Review of Books, August 24, 2017
