Editorial Reviews


"Fronted by a thorough survey of the literature, this immensely readable case study is clearly informed by theory without being clouded with jargon" - Choice Reviews

Winner, 2011 Urban Affairs Association Best Book Award

"This is fascinating stuff.  Brown-Saracino's ethnography is rich and evocative, and her analyses are even-handed and thoughtful.  She has written a wonderful, highly readable, timely, and important book." - J. Passaro, American Anthropologist

"A timely and original contribution... Brown-Saracino's book develops an empirically informed and politically non-judgmental picture of the motivations and lives of new residents in the previously deprived spaces of metropolitan neighbourhoods and rural retreats." - R. Atkinson, Cultural Sociology

"A Neighborhood That Never Changes offers a sophisticated reinvention of the classic community study by emphasizing how local residents interpret contemporary economic and political forces through the lens of culture and the imagination of authenticity. Brown-Saracino's intellectually ambitious and entertaining book adds to the burgeoning literature on gentrification by slicing through some of the assumptions of the field with empirical rigor." - David Grazian, University of Pennsylvania"
