Download Race Class and Politics in the Cappuccino City ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Wcomers are rehabbing homes developing dog parks and paving the way for a third wave coffee shop on nearly every block Race Class and Politics in the Cappuccino City is an in depth ethnography of this gilded ghetto Derek S Hyra captures here a uickly gentrifying space in which long time black residents are joined and variously displaced by an influx of young white relatively wealthy andor gay professionals who in part as a result of global economic forces and the recent deve. This book is a good combination of statisticalresearch paper style writing and anecdotal analysis of the gentrification of this DC neighborhood I read this from the perspective of someone who is a DC newcomer in a somewhat gentrifying neighborhood and works in Shaw my office is next to Progression Place which translated into a micro level analysis and no real thought process to implications this study might have on a macro level scale in other cities although the author puts forward points he thinks contribute to the gentrification literatureMain note is that if you are someone who recently moved into DC it is a must read simply for a set of facts and analysis about areas and businesses that are probably familiar to you After reading it might not be apparent what exactly you can do to help or mitigate the effects of gentrification but it is important to understand the issues present The author definitely has an angle but it isn t overwhelming and does a fairly consistent job of giving both sides of an issue It s complicated and messy and generally exactly how many white young professionals such as myself feel when thinking about the issue ourselves Pretty well written overall really short and the irony is not lost on me that this book retailed for 30 in a local DC bookstore so much like the owner of Busboys Poets the author is making some money on the backs of a neighborhood where he didn t grow up It s all so complicated folks Either way check it out
