A journey to the front lines of the battle for the
future of American cities, uncovering the massive, systemic forces
behind gentrification--and the lives that are altered in the
process.

The
term gentrification has become a buzzword to describe the
changes in urban neighborhoods across the country, but we don't realize
just how threatening it is. It means more than the arrival of trendy
shops, much-maligned hipsters, and expensive lattes. The very future of
American cities as vibrant, equitable spaces hangs in the
balance.
Peter Moskowitz's How to Kill a City takes
readers from the kitchen tables of hurting families who can no longer
afford their homes to the corporate boardrooms and political backrooms
where destructive housing policies are devised. Along the way, Moskowitz
uncovers the massive, systemic forces behind gentrification in New
Orleans, Detroit, San Francisco, and New York. The deceptively simple
question of who can and cannot afford to pay the rent goes to the heart
of America's crises of race and inequality. In the fight for economic
opportunity and racial justice, nothing could be more important than
housing.
A vigorous, hard-hitting expose, How to Kill a
City
reveals who holds power in our cities-and how we can get it
