Mixed Communities: Gentrification by Stealth?


Mixed Communities: Gentrification by Stealth? Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Encouraging social and class diversity in neighborhoods has been a major goal of urban policy and planning in a number of different countries. Mixed Communities draws together case studies by a range of international experts to assess the impacts of social mix policies and the degree to which they might represent stealth gentrification, as well as their relationship to wider social, economic, and urban change. From the perspectives of researchers, policy makers and planners, and the residents of the communities themselves, this volume draws on lessons from international comparisons.
