“It was useful to be reminded about the original debates between those who focused on demand for gentrified housing as opposed to those who focused on its supply … the authors I felt de-toxified a debate that has sometimes become a rather sterile war of ideological position.” • Tim Butler, King's College London

“It’s an interesting book, offering a different perspective on the multiple facets of gentrification. It shows a considerable range of theories, approaches, perspectives and case studies, therefore highlighting also the ambiguity of a concept.” • Giovanni Semi, University of Torino


Offering an original discussion of the gentrification phenomenon in Europe, this book provides new theoretical insights into classical works on the subject. Using a thorough analysis of the diversity of the forms, places and actors of gentrification in an attempt to isolate its ‘DNA’, the book addresses the place of social groups in cities, their competition over the appropriation of space, the infrastructure unequally offered to them by economic and political actors and the stakes of everyday social relationships.
