Geoffrey DeVerteuil compares the process of resilience across ten service hubs in three complex but different global inner-city regions - London, Los Angeles and Sydney - in response to the threat of gentrification-induced displacement. The book is the first to move beyond theoretical works on `resilience' and offers a combined conceptual and empirical approach.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"DeVerteuil demonstrates well the complex interplay of public, private and voluntary sectors across the three city regions studied and offers real insight around the varied strategies that have enabled VSOs' survival." Antipode
"Makes a vital contribution to a wider search for a more realistic understanding of what is really happening on the ground of key urban governance and policy realms" - Voluntas
"The siege on the welfare state has destroyed most collective consumption institutions, yet voluntary organisations survive in the global city. DeVerteuil's excellent analysis shows us how - and why it matters." Elvin Wyly, The University of British Columbia, Canada
