`The Handbook truly is a useful resource for urban scholars and students as it offers well-written entries by established urban scholars and several promising new researchers on various subjects within gentrification research. As such, it provides a wealth of knowledge on the processes and modalities of gentrification, as well as new research agendas on a variety of topics.' -- Wouter van Gent, International Journal of Housing Policy
`This volume draws on an impressive cast of contributors and embraces a dizzying array of interrelated topics.' -- Dennis E. Gale, Journal of Urban Affairs
`This Handbook of Gentrification Studies will be useful for graduates studying anthropology of cities, urbanism, geography, and new urban identities. There is no more complete Handbook on gentrification in the English language to date.' -- Yves Laberge, Electronic Green Journal
`The world's leading analyst of gentrification convenes an extraordinary team of contributors to map the evolving contours of planetary gentrification. This Handbook is your essential guide to the cosmopolitan cultures of capital that are intensifying the competitive nature of life everywhere on an urbanizing planet - from big cities to small agricultural villages, from the postindustrial consumption landscapes of the Global North to the hybrid hyper-modernities of the Global South and East.' -- Elvin Wyly, The University of British Columbia, Canada
`The Handbook of Gentrification Studies is useful and informative. It is a good starting point for encountering the variety of debates on the topic of gentrification and its current vexations. It demonstrates clearly the need to think in flexible, cosmopolitan and comparative ways about gentrification, and consider seriously the complicated potential offered by communal resistance to gentrification.' -- Helen Traill, LSE Review of Books
