Does gentrification significantly impact crime rates of neighborhoods? In this exploration of the differential effects of social disorganization on neighborhood homicide rates in Chicago, IL, from 1970 to 1995, Tiffany Davis investigates whether gentrification is a contributing cause to changes in homicide rates among Chicago neighborhoods. Operating from a social disorganization perspective, Davis begins by providing a racial and urban history of Chicago, IL., exploring urban segregation, immigration,neighborhood development, and gentrification. Using this as a basis for her exploration, Davis analyzes the effects of residential stability, racial heterogeneity, and economic disadvantage for three main areas – the city of Chicago, non-gentrifying neighborhoods and gentrifying neighborhoods. Movin'' On Up explores the process of gentrification in one city, over time, to provide an insightful contribution to literature on social stratification, gentrification, and crime.
