| ||"This slim volume is a nicely judged and timely contribution to housing debates. Its stated intent is to unravel the Australian experience of social mix, and it does so in exemplary fashion."|
Kate Shaw, Housing, Theory and Society, January 2013
"I commend this book to all interested in planning, housing policy and policy process analysis in general."
Sean Gould, Community Development Journal, December 2012, pp 169
"The links to new literature and the commentary weaved around previously published research are sufficient to make this volume a useful publication for social mix practitioners in Australia. Readers outside Australia may wonder if this book is relevant to them - it is!"
David Manley, Journal of Social Policy, Vol 42, 2013, pp 183-185
"This is one of the best summaries of the literature on social mix and the city that I have read. The book is well written, well structured, for the most part comprehensive, and presents a series of stimulating arguments and debates in an accessible style."
Loretta Lees, International Planning Studies, 17 (4), pp. 421-423, October 2012
"Arthurson's stated aim for her book was 'to challenge the way debates about social mix and disadvantaged neighbourhoods are framed' (p. 3). She has surely succeeded in persuasively doing so and her work merits wide reading amongst academics, students, practitioners and, perhaps above all, policy-makers."
John Flint, Housing Studies, August 2012
"Social Mix and the City is an excellent book for students and researchers in urban studies, planning, geography, sociology and related disciplines... It will also be of interest to policy makers and practitioners working in government, community organizations and those with an interest in seeking to enhance community involvement in urban policy and practice."
Elena Pede, Urban Research & Practice, Vol 5(2), 2012, pp 295-297
