Description

Geoffrey DeVerteuil compares the process of resilience across ten service hubs in three complex but different global inner-city regions - London, Los Angeles and Sydney - in response to the threat of gentrification-induced displacement. The book is the first to move beyond theoretical works on `resilience' and offers a combined conceptual and empirical approach.

About Author

As a social geographer of health, he has examined the shifting geographies of mental health care and the challenges in sustaining therapeutic landscapes within marginalised spaces of the city.
