  2. Urban Politics Revisited: A Policy-centered Look at Local Political Ecologies [Download]

    Title: Urban Politics Revisited: A Policy-centered Look at Local Political Ecologies
    Author: Stone, Clarence
    Description: This paper elaborates the policy-centered research program proposed by Hacker and Pierson (2014) by exploring how policy-centered research contributes to an understanding of urban politics and how the urban subfield contributes to a policy-centered research program. Using a bi-level analysis of the drug war and local union organizing, we highlight the local consequences of national policies and show that the consequences of national initiatives vary substantially, particularly for marginalized groups.

  4. Port Town to Urban Neighborhood: The Georgetown Waterfront of Washington, D.C. 1880-1920 [Download]

    Title: Port Town to Urban Neighborhood: The Georgetown Waterfront of Washington, D.C. 1880-1920
    Author: Smith, Kathryn Schneider
    Description: Originally an eighteenth-century Potomac River port town, Georgetown was included in the ten-mile square set aside for the federal capital in 1791. As the nineteenth century unfolded, Georgetown lost its political, social, and economic independence and became one of many neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. Today it is a prestigious and lively section of a thriving international metropolitan area. The Center for Washington Area Studies of The George Washington University has published historical studies of other sections of Washington, D.C., such as Adams Morgan, Brookland, and Foggy Bottom. But the Georgetown waterfront has begged for attention.

  5. Links in the Chain: Greenbelt, Maryland and the New Town Movement in America, GW Washinton Studies No. 13 [Download]

    Title: Links in the Chain: Greenbelt, Maryland and the New Town Movement in America, GW Washinton Studies No. 13
    Author: Klaus, Susan L.
    Description: The works compiled in this bibliography by Susan L. Klaus, the Center's Banneker Fellow in the 1985-1986 academic year, provide the information which can help the reader reconstruct the greenbelt tradition. Scholars and social critics have contributed a rich literature on the subject, and the Greenbelt fiftieth anniversary conference planned for May 1 and 2, 1987, should deepen our understanding and appreciation of the new towns movement both past and present. For the moment, however, in an age of voluntarism, it may just well be the experiences of Greenbelt residents which provides the most eloquent testimony that even utopian thinking can have its practical consequences in providing a better world to live in. The people of Greenbelt have extended and adapted to new times the spirit of another era, and on the eve of their anniversary celebration, we salute them for helping make the new town ideal a viable reality.

    Title: Evidence of Community: Writing from The Jenny McKean Moore Workshops at George Washington University, GW Washington Studies No. 11
    Author: McAleavey, David

    Title: Images of Brookland: The History and Architecture of a Washington Suburb, GW Washington Studies No. 10
    Author: McDaniel, George W.
    Description: This monograph grows out of the attempt by a graduate seminar to GWU to design and implement a community inventory which would reflect the broad, multidisciplinary criteria of the contemporary preservation movement.

  8. Gentrification in Adams Morgan: Political and Commercial Consequences of Neighborhood Change, GW Washington Studies No. 9 [Download]

    Title: Gentrification in Adams Morgan: Political and Commercial Consequences of Neighborhood Change, GW Washington Studies No. 9
    Author: Henig, Jeffrey R.
    Description: This monograph is intended as a contribution both to our understanding of dramatic changes in a specific Washington neighborhood and to the scholarly literature on the international phenomenon of gentrification of older urban centers. Particular attention is given to the impact of gentrification of older urban centers. Local readers undoubtedly will find their understanding of what actually transpired in Adams Morgan during the last twenty years to be challenged at one or more key points by Professor Henig's analysis. Residents of other cities will have the basis for a comparative perspective on similar developments in their locales. Those responsible for urban policy making hopefully will gain insight into the meaning of gentrification to those for whom it is an immediate experience and not merely a social trend.

  9. Foggy Bottom 1800 - 1975: A Study in the Uses of an Urban Neighborhood, GW Washington Studies No. 7 [Download]

    Title: Foggy Bottom 1800 - 1975: A Study in the Uses of an Urban Neighborhood, GW Washington Studies No. 7
    Author: Sherwood, Suzanne Berry
    Description: This monograph discusses nearly two centuries of the history of Foggy Bottom, a small but distinctive section of the District of Columbia situated at the junction of the Potomac River and Rock Creek. As in the case of most urban neighborhoods, its precise boundaries are a matter of dispute. There is no question, however, that historically Foggy Bottom was divided into two sections. The part between 17th and 23rd Streets was an upper-income neighborhood during much of the nineteenth century. The section between 23rd Street on the east and Georgetown on the west and between the Potomac River on the south and Pennsylvania Avenue on the north was more industrial and house lower-income residents.

  10. Ancient Washington: American Indian Cultures of the Potomac Valley, GW Washington Studies No. 6 [Download]

    Title: Ancient Washington: American Indian Cultures of the Potomac Valley, GW Washington Studies No. 6
    Author: Humphrey, Robert L.
    Description: Washington, D.C., was the institutional center for the emerging discipline of scientific ethnology in nineteenth-century America, but the prehistoric culture of this metropolitan region was seldom the subject of sustained attention from the new scholars. However, the concurrent revivals of interest in American Indian culture and in the history of the city of Washington suggest that this neglect will soon be rectified. it seemed to the editors that both the general public and the academic community would welcome a concise summary of the best present knowledge of ancient Washington and its first inhabitants. This monograph is written in the standard style of anthropological journals. The full references for the parenthetical citations in the text can be located easily in the bibliography.
