about this item

Resilience has become one of the first fully-fledged academic and political buzzwords of the twenty-first century. In this book, Geoffrey DeVerteuil proposes a more critically engaged and conceptually robust version of the term, applying it to the conspicuous but now residual clusters of voluntary sector organizations deemed service hubs.” The process of resilience in response to the threat of gentrification-induced displacement is compared across ten service hubs in three complex but different global inner-city regions: London, Los Angeles, and Sydney. DeVerteuil shows that resilience can be not only about holding on to previous gains, but also about holding out for transformation. The first book to move beyond pure theories of resilience and offer a combined conceptual and empirical approach, Resilience in the Post-Welfare Inner City will interest urban geographers, social planners, and researchers of the voluntary sector.
