An excellent empirical analysis of the gentrification process,
clearly the culmination of a sustained and thoughtful research
study. Although this is a book principally about Canadian cities,
there are a number of valuable insights which are applicable to the
US and British localities. - Keith Jacobs - Housing Studies
`Faculty are often asked, by students and funding agencies, for examples of how scholarly research in a given discipline or field should be done. This volume provides an excellent model. The book is very well written, carefully argued, richly informative and copiously documented... not only solid scholarship, but a good read. Students of inner cities will find this volume especially useful... It may also serve as the definitive history to date of the
gentrification literature... this volume will likely stand as... the definitive history of, three decades of research on gentrification.'
Larry S. Bourne, Progress in Human Geography
