Gated Communities by Rowland Atkinson

Book Description

This informative volume gathers contemporary accounts of the growth, influences on, and impacts of so-called gated communities, developments with walls, gates, guards and other forms of surveillance. While gated communities have become a common feature of the urban landscape in South Africa, Latin and North America, it is also clear that there is now significant interest in gated living in the European and East Asian urban context. The chapters in this book investigate issues and communities such as: * gated communities in the metropolitan area of Buenos Aires, Argentina * planning responses to gated communities in Canada * who segregates whom? The analysis of a gated community in Mendoza, Argentina * sprawl and social segregation in southern California. These illustrative chapters enable the reader to understand more about the social and economic forces that have lead to gating, the ways in which gated communities are managed, and their wider effects on both residents and those living outside the gates. This book was previously published as a special issue of the journal Housing Studies.

Books By Author Rowland Atkinson

House, Home and Society by Rowland Atkinson House, Home and Society, Hardback (March 2016)

Issues around houses and homes reflect and inform our social, cultural and political worlds, from the subprime market and the financial crisis to social mobility and gender roles. Critically exploring key theories and cutting-edge debates, this text examines home in a global context for students across sociology, human geography and urban studies.

Gentrification in a Global Context by Rowland Atkinson Gentrification in a Global Context, Paperback (March 2005)

Gentrification, a process of class neighbourhood upgrading, is being identified in a broader range of urban contexts throughout the world. This title throws new light and evidence to bear on a subject that divides commentators on its worth and social costs, given its ability to physically improve areas but also to displace indigenous inhabitants.
