DeSena and Shortell bring together a stellar cast of scholars who use demographic, ethnographic, and comparative data to offer a fresh perspective on race, ethnicity and class in Brooklyn’s changing neighborhoods. It is a must-read for anybody interested in understanding gentrification and growing inequality after the Great Recession.
The volume includes contributions by Jerry Krase, Noel S. Anderson, and Alessandro Busà, among many others.
