'Resilience' has become one of the first fully fledged academic and political buzzwords of the 21st century. Within this context, Geoffrey DeVerteuil proposes a more critically engaged and conceptually robust version, applying it to the conspicuous but now residual clusters of inner-city voluntary sector organisations deemed a€˜service hubsa€™. The process of resilience is compared across ten service hubs in three complex but different global inner-city regions a€“ London, Los Angeles and Sydney a€“ in response to the threat of gentrification-induced displacement. DeVerteuil shows that resilience can be about holding on to previous gains but also about holding out for transformation. The book is the first to move beyond theoretical works on a€˜resiliencea€™ and offers a combined conceptual and empirical approach that will interest urban geographers, social planners and researchers in the voluntary sector.Voluntary Sector Geographies in London, Los Angeles and Sydney Geoffrey DeVerteuil ... Given the centrality to the broader voluntary sector in their respective cities, both areas were showcase locations where voluntarysector organisations stayed ... not nearly as much as other Inner London boroughs like Tower Hamlets, where British-born white people are currently in the minority (UK census, 2011).
