Gentrification and the Rise of the Real Estate State
Samuel Stein studies geography at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. His writing on planning politics has been published by The Guardian, Jacobin, The Journal of Urban Affairs, Metropolitics, and many other magazines and journals.He is the author of Capital City: Gentrification and the Real Estate State, out now from Verso books. Capital City investigates what Stein calls “the rise of the real estate state,” or the increasingly powerful faction of government that seeks to bend public policy toward ever-rising property values. The book is particularly concerned with the role of city planners in producing and perpetuating gentrification, and the ways planning might be reworked to produce more affordable and democratic urban spaces.
