About the Author:

Japonica Brown-Saracino is assistant professor of sociology at Loyola University Chicago where she specializes in urban and community sociology, cultural sociology, and the study of race, ethnicity, and sexuality. Her work on gentrification, which draws on her ethnographic data, has appeared in City and Community and Theory and Society, as well as in a book, A Neighborhood That Never Changes: Gentrification, Social Preservation, and the Search for Authenticity.

Review:

'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
