Gentrification in Adams Morgan: Political and Commercial Consequences of Neighborhood Change, GW Washington Studies No. 9 Open Access
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.
