About Gentrification in a Global Context

Gentrification, a process of class neighbourhood upgrading, is being identified in a broader range of urban contexts throughout the world.

Each author gives an overview of gentrification in their country so that each chapter retains a unique approach but tackles a common theme within a shared framework. The main feature of the book is a critical and well-written set of chapters on a process that is currently undergoing a resurgence of interest and one that shows no sign of abating.
