sides of a controversial, deeply personal issue In this lively yet rigorous book, John Joe Schlichtman, Jason Patch, and Marc Lamont Hill take a close look at the socioeconomic factors and individual decisions behind gentrification and their implications for the displacement of low income residents Drawing on a variety of perspectives, the authors present interviews, case studies, and analysis in the context of recent scholarship in such areas as urban sociology, geography, planning, and public policy As well, they share accounts of their first hand experience as academics, parents, and spouses living in New York City, San Diego, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Providence With unique insight and rare candour, GENTRIFIER challenges readers current understandings of gentrification and their own roles within their neighborhoods A foreword by Peter Marcuse opens the volume REVIEWS Gentrifier is the sort of book that vintage, pre Kardashian Kanye West might have written had he had a PhD in urban policy, supplying it with an irresistible hook We re all gentrifiers, I m just the first to admit it Schlichtman, Patch, and Hill help us shelve what we thought we knew about gentrification, and give us instead a brutally honest reckoning with the ills, conveniences and virtues but especially the consequences on the vulnerable of gentrification They ably wrestle with a characteristic facet of modern existence, rescuing the term from automatic demonization while never once letting it off the hook for the damage it can do Michael Eric Dyson, Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University and author of Tears We Cannot Stop A Sermon to White America In their book Gentrifier, instead of trying to solve the gentrification Rubik s cube, they decide to pull it apart, block by block, naming each part and its role in neighborhood change The book provides not only a glossary of terms, but also tools and rules of engagement for deploying this thing that if we can all agree on nothing else has now become a fully loaded and weaponized word The function of this breakdown is that by using a scrupulous lexicon for describing the changes happening to one s neighborhood or environment, legislators and regulators can be responsive and accurate in their policy proposals from CityLab s Books That Influenced Us in 2017, Brentin Mock The co authors of Gentrifier take a daring tack Professors all, they break the third wall of social science from the New York Times Book Review, Daniel Brook By making themselves and their choices part of the analysis, they have produced a unique and important contribution to the progressive literature on gentrification, one that truly does work in the much sought middle ground between supply and demand side explanations of this form of urban change from Antipode Journal, Amy Starecheski This book will provoke outrage among many gentrification scholars But it provides a welcome corrective to the slap dash way gentrification is used an explanatory force in popular narratives and some scholarship The price puts it just within reach of the interested general reader, who I would encourage to read it It would also be a valuable addition to reading lists on urban studies, urban geography and urban planning from LSE Review of Books, Peter Matthews Schlichtman, Patch, and Hill present a rich discussion of gentrification as a socio economic force touching on much than soft complaints about tall condos, disappearing neighbourhood bookshops, and 8 lattesThe book encourages us to look inward, arming us with tools and experience to dissect our ideologies to better understand gentrification and gentrifiers from Spacing Magazine Gentrifier, a co written effort by John Joe Schlichtman, Jason Patch, and Marc Lamont Hill, takes a slightly different approach, and one that was most enjoyable to read It s a nuanced take on what it means to join an existing community from Curbed, Alissa Walker Gentrifier does a masterful job of explaining, unpacking, and grounding the key analytical concepts that underpin debates on gentrification In clear, readable, and entertaining prose, John Joe Schlichtman, Jason Patch and Marc Lamont Hill make gentrification tangible and relevant as an important social topic worthy of rigorous and careful understanding John L Jackson, Jr Richard Perry University Professor and Dean of the School of Social Policy Practice, University of Pennsylvania John Joe Schlichtman, Jason Patch and Marc Lamont Hill clearly engage in the theoretical and policy debates surrounding gentrification while offering very smart analyses of their own narratives There is a lot out there on gentrification but Gentrifier is most definitely fresh Mary Pattillo, Harold Washington Professor of Sociology and African American Studies, Northwestern University

    1. 3.5 Stars.Gentrifier is an interesting take on the topic of gentrification The authors are three upper middle class academics of differing races and childhood backgrounds who all identify as gentrifiers This book is an academic text, but I did find it to be written in accessible ways than many academic writings The authors sought to tackle the nuances of the topic of gentrification in hopes of starting a conversation and finding ways to deal with a phenomenon that seems to be an inevitable cons [...]


    2. I found this to be an interesting and thought provoking read The issue of gentrification is so complex, and like so many of today s issues, race and socio economics make it difficult to have civil discussions and that just might lead to real solutions The authors used themselves and others to demonstrate that the gentrifier is not one monolithic archetype and that there are many reasons that prompt individual decisions I liked the construct that acknowledges the macro, meso and micro level facto [...]


    3. This book offers a fresh perspective types of gentrifiers and their motives not often found in gentrification literature I would recommend this book to any urbanite and urban scholar alike.


    4. Interesting topic, but terribly dry book felt like reading a college textbook In the end, I don t feel that I learned all that much about gentrification, perhaps some increased knowledge on the history and social study of it, but no real take away strategies.
