In her new book, Protecting Suburban America: Gentrification, Advocacy, and the Historic Imaginary, Professor Denise Lawrence-Zuniga bridges anthropology, architecture, planning, and urban studies to examine preservation and restoration practices in five California cities where affluent homeowners are renovating older twentieth-century neighborhoods once suffering from decline. Dr. Lawrence’s unique approach combines a study of historic preservation with ethnographic fieldwork to shed light on issues of heritage, preservation, gentrification, class, ethnicity, and contested values in suburbia that have worldwide implications.
