    HANDBOOK OF GENTRIFICATION STUDIES

    Book ID/图书代码: 04289519C00007

    English Summary/英文概要: It is now over 50 years since the term `gentrification’ was first coined by the British urbanist Ruth Glass in 1964, in which time gentrification studies has become a subject in its own right. This Handbook, the first ever in gentrification studies, is a critical and authoritative assessment of the field. Although the Handbook does not seek to rehearse the classic literature on gentrification from the 1970s to the 1990s in detail, it is referred to in the new assessments of the field gathered in this volume. The original chapters offer an important dialogue between existing theory and new conceptualisations of gentrification for new times and new places, in many cases offering novel empirical evidence. Scholarly contributions are drawn from both established and up and coming experts in gentrification studies world-wide, and a deliberate attempt has been made to broaden the geographical scope of study. As such, the Handbook covers processes of gentrification in the global north and the global south. It also looks at different mutations of gentrification and pays proper attention to both resistance to gentrification and the importance of thinking about alternatives. The Handbook challenges readers to look at both the future of gentrification studies as well as the actual process of gentrification itself. Gentrification studies is interdisciplinary and this Handbook will be especially useful to scholars in many fields including geography, sociology, anthropology, planning, law, urban studies, policy studies, rural studies, development studies, and cultural studies. It will also be of value to those activists fighting gentrification worldwide.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要:

    Awards/获奖情况:‘This Handbook of Gentrification Studies will be useful for graduates studying anthropology of cities, urbanism, geography, and new urban identities. There is no more complete Handbook on gentrification in the English language to date.’ Author: Yves Laberge, Electronic Green Journal

    ‘The world’s leading analyst of gentrification convenes an extraordinary team of contributors to map the evolving contours of planetary gentrification. This Handbook is your essential guide to the cosmopolitan cultures of capital that are intensifying the competitive nature of life everywhere on an urbanizing planet ― from big cities to small agricultural villages, from the postindustrial consumption landscapes of the Global North to the hybrid hyper-modernities of the Global South and East.’ Author: Elvin Wyly, The University of British Columbia, Canada

    ‘The Handbook of Gentrification Studies is useful and informative. It is a good starting point for encountering the variety of debates on the topic of gentrification and its current vexations. It demonstrates clearly the need to think in flexible, cosmopolitan and comparative ways about gentrification, and consider seriously the complicated potential offered by communal resistance to gentrification.’ Author: Helen Traill, LSE Review of Books
