Rethinking gentrification: beyond the uneven development of marxist urban theory

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In this paper, Rose makes a critical assessment of the ways that issues relating to the "gentrification" of innercity neighbourhoods have been conceptualised, especially in North America, in both positivist and extant marxist work. The author addresses epistemological problems of neoclassical and marxist approaches to this subject, and critically appraises the problematic of marxist work on gentrification, emphasising its lack of attention to the interrelationships of employment restructuring and changes in the reproduction of labour power. Finally she explores the possibility that such "marginal gentrifiers" and those they now displace may have similar needs that could be met by different kinds of neighbourhood revitalisation.
