"Urbanists, Harlem residents, and really anyone who loves cities but fears the consequences of unplanned economic growth will admire Maurrasse's ability to combine street conversations with Harlem citizens, exciting social science theory, history, policy analysis and even a poetic eye to the conflicting forces that together comprise the changing landscape of Harlem. This book doesn't deceive with facile solutions to gentrification and race relations; it plows right through to the core of the challenge."
-Professor Andrew Hahn, Brandeis University, Heller School for Management and Social Policy
