PDF Global Gentrifications

Book description

Under contemporary capitalism the extraction of value from the built environment has escalated, a phenomenon working in tandem with other urban processes to lay the foundations for the exploitative processes of gentrification worldwide. Global Gentrifications critically assesses and tests the meaning and significance of gentrification in places outside the usual suspects of the Global North. Informed by a rich array of case studies from cities in Asia, Latin America, Africa, Southern Europe, and beyond, the book illuminates both the geographical generalities and specificities associated with the uneven process of gentrification globally. Highlighting the intensifying global struggles over urban space, it underlines gentrification as a growing and important battleground in the contemporary world, making the book a vital resource for students and academics as well as policy makers, planners, and community organizations.
