qSarah Schulman, as always, hits the nail on the head. I can't imagine a more insightful probe into gentrification and its inhumane consequences. Everyone needs to read this book.q--Martin Duberman, author of qStonewallq qSarah Schulman's qThe Gentrification of the Mindq is a bulwark against the collective loss of memory. AIDS, gentrification, the struggle for gay rights, the class war that has driven entire communities of artists, immigrants, and outsiders from the neighborhoods they created--all these things have been erased by the official culture. Schulman's book will make you rage and weep, and then--just maybe--organize.q--Luc Sante, author of qLow Life: Lures and Snares of Old New Yorkq qHard-headed, sensitive, and informed, this book will make the confused world of urban redevelopment and gentrification make notably more sense. Schulman has a mind as clear as a bell in evening. You'll be glad you read it. I was.q--Samuel R.
