MEDIA REVIEWS

'In academic and political circles alike, the gentrification of local neighborhoods fuels contention over the major urban issues of the day: the rehabilitation of vacant land and defunct industrial buildings; the role of the arts, culture, and public space in the life of the city; and the rising inequality between wealthy and poor communities. In this terrific collection, Japonica Brown-Saracino presents a broad and inclusive intellectual map of our collective wrangling over these urban processes and their impact on the metropolitan landscape.' - David Grazian, Sociology, University of Pennsylvania

'Through an engaging blend of personal reflection, anecdotal material and discussion of scholarship The Gentrification Debates provides a well-balanced broad-ranging introduction to gentrification. Excerpts from influential journal articles and theses, discussion questions and activities provide the reader with useful resources that make The Gentrification Debates a suitable text for undergraduate and graduate courses in a variety of disciplines.' - Susan Lucas, Geography and Urban Studies, Temple University
